GS1 defines traceability as the ability to track forward the movement through specified stages of the extended supply chain and to trace back through the history, application or location of that which is under consideration of an intended trade item/product. Traceability is a recognized means to improve safety and deal with recall across manufacture industries. In food industry in particular, traceability can mitigate incomplete and asymmetric information and eliminate anonymity in the food supply chain; it can facilitate the allocation of liability and create incentive for food firms to improve their safety practices.
Implementing traceability can bring a number of great benefits to a firm. In addition to improving safety, for example, it can increase vertical coordination, improve inventory management, satisfy consumer demand, and reduce the product recall cost. Despite these advantages, food firms have major concerns on a variety of factors including the cost benefit, organizational impact and process reengineering that implementing traceability may bring. Lack of financial support, knowledge, and technical personnel can also makes food firms reluctant to implement traceability. Traceability diffusion needs a cost-effective solution and, most importantly, it requires incentives for firms to move forward in its implementation.
