This event explores the background, legislation and needs for food traceability, covering experiences from international case studies and the latest progress.

It discusses how traceability no longer stops at the farm gate or national boundaries and how the law is changing. It evaluates how voluntary and mandatory schemes are best managed – from the management of vast amounts of data to the use of old and new inputs including DNA, RFID, smart barcodes and other technologies. At last
we see a truly global appraisal of what works and what does not work.

Those wishing to enhance their food supply chain, meet new laws and learn from others must attend this event.
