A new report from the Conference Board of Canada says that without a robust food traceability system, public safety and trust in our food supply are at risk. Forging Stronger Links: Traceability and the Canadian Food Supply Chain was developed for the Conference Board's Centre for Food in Canada. It analyzes food traceability system issues and identifies potential ways to improve traceability performance in Canada. The publication recommends that every firm in the food supply chain needs to be able to accurately trace its products or ingredients one step forward and one step back in the supply chain.
A webinar on this report will be held Monday, Nov. 26, at 3 p.m. Eastern time.
