12:10 - 12:45

With increased complexity in the food supply chain, the humble barcode is beginning to be more relevant, carrying loads of data for back-end systems to use. Data used for traceability systems are valuable to be integrated and have new applications to improve consumer safety for the shopper. This presentation will look at global standards being implemented within an Italian retailer to address traceability and management of waste, utilising data into an integrated system for the safety benefit of the consumer. At the end of the presentation, you will have the following:

  • Understand some integration processes with traceability data
  • The usage of the GS1 DataBar standard with an Italian retailer
  • How to get involved in global and local initiatives
