5 Ways Produce Traceability Can Benefit Your Agriculture Company

10/28/2015

As the Produce Traceability Initiative continues to gain steam with major players in the agricultural industry, there's no better time for companies of all sizes to begin reaping the benefits of the program. Designed to streamline track and trace procedures for food safety and quality, the initiative offers a host of advantages to participants. From reducing the cost of product recalls to simplified inventory management, the initiative simultaneously protects the health of consumers and the bottom line of agriculture companies. In this post, we'd like to take a closer look at five of the major advantages that T3 Tracking's Produce Scan Inventory system offers your agricultural company.

1. Quality assurance

Knowing exactly where every item in your crop originated allows you to exercise an increased level of control over your yield. To ensure the best quality, individual items from each lot can be thoroughly inspected, tested and sampled to ensure that the entire crop is acceptable.

2. Tracking and tracing

Making recalls easier, produce tracking and tracing lets you respond swiftly in the event of an emergency. By utilizing the bar codes on your produce, all items from the same yield - or area - can be recalled as a preventative measure.

3. Inventory management

With T3 Tracking's Produce Scan inventory manager, maintaining your inventory has never been easier. As every item is individually labeled, you know exactly what you have on hand, where it came from and where it is going.

4. Yield and variety management

Since produce traceability gives you increased control over your crop, it can also be used to compare the performance of different varieties in your field. Ultimately, you can use this information to increase your profits by making informed decisions about what to plant in the future.

5. Accounting integration

By integrating produce traceability into your accounting system you can gain a better understanding of what seeds and varieties are selling. Armed with this information, you can then better manage your field, your employees and your company.

At T3 Tracking, our Produce Scan inventory management system is designed to allow you to track your produce from the moment it leaves the vine until it reaches the hands of your consumers. With a host of features that aim to make your life easier - and your company more profitable - there's virtually no downside to joining the Produce Traceability Initiative.
