Traceability in just one click

Have you ever thought of getting all the data about a batch of dairy products easily and automatically?

Dairy

Traceability and yield control to produce more and better

Project Data

We know that most dairies already have the information to do the "traceability test", as important to meet the requirements of the legislation as to ensure the production of safe food for the consumer.

This information can be found in various forms (reception, raw milk laboratories, manufacturing, physical, chemical and microbiological laboratory, warehouse and packaging) that need to be found, gathered and evaluated to access the information.

However, how do you feel when the inspector or an auditor demands this traceability? Are you reassured?

Usually what we perceive at that moment is a certain apprehension, since it is laborious to put together all the cards for the batch of product in question. Even when putting together all the cards that were used that day, we are afraid of missing some information from this batch, of a failure to fill in or the loss of some important information. In our perception, this work of consolidating traceability information is low efficiency and risky.

Low efficiency because, if the information has already been monitored, it should be ready to be presented at times of inspections or audits.

It is risky because, unfortunately, we still see serious cases of the marketing of inappropriate products due to unintentional failures in traceability.

Having all the information at hand to respond quickly in cases of recall can be easy when the company uses a robust traceability system, but it is also safer.

Below we share an example of the traceability generated by iTrack: as the information enters the system throughout the production process, we already have this report generated batch with a simple click.

Context and Challenges

And here we have an example of unintentional failures that can occur: a batch of milk 01b-153 was found to have been contaminated. Therefore, it is necessary to recall all products manufactured using milk from this balloon. If it is possible, you should prevent these products from leaving the plant.

In the figure below, we selected this milk and iTrack informed all the lots (finished product)that were produced from it:

Having the traceability of the process guarantees the dairy's transparency, safety and reliability. Having a robust system for this generates efficiency and tranquility in your dairy's routine.
