Food safety incidents can negatively impact both the government and industries. The government may face trading losses, embargo on products, increase in healthcare costs, and loss of consumer confidence. For the food industry, more serious cases not only lead to business loss, but also a total wind-up and even lawsuit. Food safety incidents should never be taken lightly as the impact can be extended to the entire industry or even country.


Supply chain traceability is one of the ways to mitigate the risk. There is an increasing trend for food related companies to digitalize their operations and better manage their supply chain with traceability. An interoperable digitalized system enables food companies to manage and predict product supplies. GS1, a global supply chain standards organization, developed Global Traceability Standards (GTS) to support businesses to uplift their traceability standard, comply with the regulatory requirements and other trade requirements.
