About the Program
Development of a Food Traceability framework will help standardise data sharing along the supply chain
The Implementing Food Traceability Program is an initiative of the Deakin University Centre for Supply Chain and Logistics Food Traceability Lab and industry sponsors – recognising the need for end-to-end traceability is a key supply chain challenge that extends beyond any single organisation.
The Program commenced on 1 July, 2020.
Stage 1: Development of a generic Food Traceability Guide to help companies identify the critical tracking events of the product journey
Stage 2: Development of product-specific guides and value stream guides (e.g. organics or Halal) to support product claims.
Stage 3: Testing the guides in real industry settings using technology and IT systems and solutions.
Stage 4: Preparation of e-learning resources for industry on supply chain traceability
Stage 5: Evaluation of the benefits to businesses across food supply chains
