Food Traceability

Food traceability is one of the most crucial factors to the supply chain of fresh produce. Washington Fruit & Produce Co, with the help of select vendors, has developed a cutting edge supply chain traceability process. With this process Washington Fruit is able to trace fruit down to the box level both inside and outside the company. This supply chain traceability has been paired with an internal system of pallet tagging that ensures the correct product is being shipped to the correct customer. Also controls have been built into the system to ensure the fruit being shipped meets each individual customer’s requirements. Employees at Washington Fruit discuss how this system has changed the industry.
