The Role of Quality Assurance in the Age of Tech-Enabled Traceability

 

Learn about the role food quality assurance plays across the industry, as well as the importance of adopting digitized methods in support of the future of traceability.

While quality assurance (QA) is an indisputably vital factor across industries and their respective supply chains, it is of utmost importance within the food supply chain. Food quality assurance consists of a series of practices utilized by food and beverage companies to guarantee that their products are meeting industry, brand and consumer standards, in addition to safety regulations. In turn, these practices generate consumer trust, allowing customers to develop confidence in these brands and their ability to satisfy quality requirements, as well as generate products that are safe for consumption. 

RFID and Supply Chain Digitization in the New Era of Smarter Food Safety


Zebra Technologies and FoodLogiQ discuss how RFID is shaping the modernization of the food supply chain, and what food system stakeholders are doing to prepare for new regulations.

Last year, the FDA launched a new forward-looking campaign to drive long term adoption and consensus around supply chain modernization. The New Era of Smarter Food Safety initiative is a major step towards building a tech-enabled food system through incremental changes in culture, proliferation of new technologies and clarity around interoperable standards. Many of these changes will soon be codified in updates to the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) section 204, which have been outlined in a proposed traceability rule published in September 2020.

Longtime partners FoodLogiQ and Zebra Technologies recently released new functionality as part of the FoodLogiQ Connect Winter Release in order to achieve a more efficient and effective food technology ecosystem. FoodLogiQ Director of Content and Growth Marketing Anna Ploegh sat down with Zebra Technologies Director of RFID Business Development Susan Flake and FoodLogiQ VP of Supply Chain Strategy and Insights Julie McGill to discuss how RFID is shaping the modernization of the food supply chain, as well as how supply chain digitization will enable food companies to better participate in the New Era.
