If you’re working in the agriculture industry, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the Produce Traceability Initiative. Aiming to make it easier to track produce back to its point of origin, produce traceability offers a wealth of benefits to both companies and consumers. And, while it does require an upfront investment, the savings that traceability creates more than compensate for that initial expenditure. In this post, we’re going to take a closer look at how you can boost your profit by using Produce Scan from T3 Technologies.
Control your recalls
While the best way to reduce the cost of a recall is to avoid it altogether, agriculture companies know that this is a pipe dream. Recalls happen and, when they do, a full-scale recall is a costly, time-consuming process. Produce traceability allows you to target your recalls, preventing the need for full-scale, untargeted recalls and saving you money by leaving unaffected products on the shelves.
Reduce labor costs
Because produce traceability is a digital initiative, it results in digital records. Free from the burden of sorting, sifting and identifying specific paper records, your administrative costs will be reduced and, more importantly, your response times will be shortened drastically.
More trust, more sales
It may seem obvious but consumers place their trust in companies that take steps to earn their trust. Naturally, they then spend more with companies that they trust. By allowing for produce traceability, you show your customers that you have their best interests – and safety – in mind.
At T3 Technologies, we aim to provide agriculture companies with the tools and training that they need to implement effective – and cost-efficient – produce traceability processes. Whether you’re a small, organic operation or a massive, global food provider, we will work with you to implement the solution that you need.
