A food-traceability workshop, scheduled for Aug. 24 and 25 in Kansas City, Mo., will offer food and agricultural businesses practical solutions for end-to-end traceability.

This workshop is designed for agriculture, produce and meat manufacturers, distributors and retailers. The complexity of the perishables supply chain requires new tools and technologies for optimization and authentication of products across all supply chain trading partners. By attending, all parties in the produce supply chain will gain specific information about solutions, systems, data management challenges and professional services work in tandem to help companies achieve compliance and more.

The workshop is scheduled for Aug. 24 and 25, at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, Mo., in conjunction with the annual Animal ID Expo, produced by the National Institute of Animal Agriculture.

 The Food Traceability Road Show is designed to offer the building blocks: basic and realistic information about people, process and technology to implement a food traceability program in the short term.  You won’t hear about a 5- to 10-year technology forecast; you will not hear multiple message from vendors; you will not spend an afternoon trying to understand what the Federal Government will do next. 

This Road Show delivers practical information – a bottom-up approach to implementing a scaleable food traceability system that delivers value in the short term, and one that can be built upon for the long-term.
