Traceability of food products for export to the US
In the export sector of agri-food products, there has been a lot of talk about the recent update of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) proposed by the US FDA, specifically, section 204 that covers record keeping and improvement, monitoring and tracing of food products and that has to affect Spanish companies exporting agri-food products to the United States.
In this line of work, a Food Safety Plan for a company in the Sector should take into account at least four central elements related to its supply chain:
- Its traceability, facilitated by technology
- The use of intelligent tools for the prevention and response to incidents and threats
- The new commercial and modernization models of the retail trade
- The Food Safety culture
Quality assurance (QA) is an indispensable element in all sectors and their respective supply chains. Ensuring the quality of food is of the utmost importance so that the corresponding companies can guarantee that their products comply with the standards of the sector, the brand and the consumer, and specifically, with the norms to generate safe products. Likewise, these practices influence consumers and their perception of safety and trust in such brands and their ability to satisfy quality requirements.
