Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI)
The Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) is an industry-led effort to enhance traceability throughout the entire produce supply chain. The Initiative’s sponsor associations include United Fresh Produce Association (United Fresh), Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) and Produce Marketing Association (PMA). The PTI Action Plan outlines the steps for achieving traceability at the case-level by 2012.
The produce industry has endorsed the Produce Traceability Initiative to build a common framework for standardized case labeling and streamlined connectivity across the supply chain. This initiative states each member of the supply chain will implement its own internal traceability system requiring common pieces of information to be tracked, to achieve visibility from farm to fork.
Paragon Labeling Systems understands this initiative, and has automated labeling products available to help companies comply with this mandate. Our solution allows end-users to comply with the PTI by automatically applying the required PTI information on every case of produce in your supply chain. Our solution is designed to enhance the value of your existing produce business system, while simultaneously cutting cost. Each installation is tailored for the individual operation. Take costs out of your business while achieving full and comprehensive traceability.
