What is the Produce Traceability Initiative?
The Produce Traceability Initiative is designed to help the produce industry maximize the effectiveness of current traceback procedures, while developing a standardized industry approach to enhance the speed and efficiency of traceability systems for the future.
The PTI vision:
Supply chain-wide adoption of electronic traceability for every case of produce by the year 2012.
The Importance of Traceability
The Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) allows consumers to track exactly where their perishable foods come from. This information enables buyers to choose produce from suppliers based on levels of freshness and food safety. The PTI also takes away the anonymity of suppliers — allowing them to express the pride they have in their product.
