DUBLIN, Calif., April 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — iTradeNetwork, the leading provider of on-demand supply chain and intelligence solutions for the food and beverage industry, is proud to announce additional functionality within the iTrade platform that will help participants in the perishables supply chain comply with Safe Food for Canadians Act (SFCA) regulations.
Having already launched the SFCA Module in October 2018 that focused on preventative controls by helping ensure perishables are shipped from only certified locations at the point-of-origin, the iTracefresh suite further increases compliance by quickly capturing and keeping traceability records in accordance with one step forward and one step back provisions in sections 90 through 92 of the Safe Food for Canadians regulations.
For iTracefresh, one-step traces are just the start. It also captures dozens of data attributes about the provenance, variety, and growing conditions of all kinds of perishables, and seamlessly transmits this information downstream to buyers so they have a full picture of what they are receiving and know exactly when it was shipped. These attributes include: harvester packaging type, field quality, soil characteristics, and weather and temperature descriptions, to name just a few. “iTrade promotes compliance with SFCA by enabling traceability all the way down to an individual item level,” says iTracefresh Product Manager Harrison Enright. “This level of granularity positions iTracefresh at the forefront of the industry’s movement towards creating a more transparent and trustworthy supply chain.”
Facilitating SFCA compliance easily and seamlessly is one in a string of innovations iTrade has brought to the market in the past 12 months, including iTradeOrder — a new fresh trading, traceability, inspection, and analytics platform tailored to mid-market retailers — and iTradeBlockchain, the food and beverage industry’s first homegrown blockchain solution.
