Standardising your food chain operation to enhance product safety, quality and traceability

Theory + Implementation + Strategy : Develop Your Trusted Food Brand!

Food safety incidents or crises negatively impact both government and industries. They can have a significant economic impact on an entire product category, industry, or even country. Governments face loses in trade, trade embargo, increases in healthcare costs, and reduced consumer confidence. Industry may face collapse, litigation and loses of brand and business. The negative effects may even spill over to other products not actually implicated. Thus, an effective, traceable food system is one of the core factors in driving you to provide a safe and quality food product and service to the consumers.

Global Traceability Standard (GTS) is jointly developed by over hundred of major industry practitioners worldwide, with cross reference to ISO 22005, ISO 9001, HACCP (ISO 22000:2005), BRC Global Standard, IFS, SQF and Global GAP, to provide a practical implementation guideline and KNOW-HOW tactics in assisting the food and food-related companies to adopt end-to-end traceability from farm to fork, in order to strengthen the monitoring process, ensure food quality and safety, thereby retain customer loyalty.
