Chipotle Mexican Grill: Getting Started with Traceability


Looking for insights on establishing or enhancing your traceability program? Need help decoding the “alphabet soup” of GS1 acronyms, including GLN, GTIN and GS1-128? Traceability leader Chipotle Mexican Grill makes recommendations on how to build your program, manage implementation, and how tech-enabled traceability can enhance your operations.

Chipotle Mexican Grill was born of the “radical belief that there is a connection between how food is raised and prepared, and how it tastes.” With over 2,800 locations, the beloved brand delivers high-quality fast-casual experiences at an incredible scale, backed by fresh, traceable ingredients. In 2020 alone, Chipotle purchased over 31 million pounds of local produce as part of their effort to build a sustainable business.

Preparing for the Proposed FSMA 204 Rule with Chick-fil-A


Don’t miss FoodLogiQ’s upcoming live webinar on how to prepare for the FDA's proposed traceability rule with industry leader Chick-fil-A.

Section 204 of the Food Safety Modernization Act instructs the FDA to develop additional recordkeeping requirements for certain foods to help establish clear tracing of a food product's source when needed to address food safety risks. In the proposed rule, the FDA encourages firms to maintain required traceability information in a single electronic system.

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.
