A report summarizing the findings of a mock trace-back/trace forward exercise commissioned by the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition was released by IFT. “The mock trace-back/trace forward exercise was able to show there is potential to expedite trace-backs by visualizing supply chains to find points of commonality based on data availability, capture, and readiness. The exercise also showed the value of collaboration to reach a shared goal and the need for standardization of data elements and interoperability necessary for trace-back/trace forward investigations.” The report and additional materials are accessible at www.ift.org/traceability.
