Food quality has become an important issue in the last decade. However, achieving end‐to‐end traceability across the supply chain is currently quite a challenge from a technical, co‐ordination and a cost perspective. The paper contributes by suggesting a specific technological approach, exploiting the new possibilities provided by RFID technology, to address these issues.

Across the globe, Regulations that mandate the ability to trace the origins of food are being put in place to control the food chain, provide safer food supplies, and prevent bioterrorism.

Benefits with RFID:

  • Meet traceability compliance deadlines.
  • Integrate agricultural firms into the food chain.
  • Reduce product recall costs with case-level RFID tags.

Omnia provides a number of LF and UHF tags which can be used in food traceability for packaged food and crate identification
