In this video series, the Kellerman Consulting team discusses the important topic of traceability in food businesses. Throughout the six-video series, we cover topics such as what traceability information to collect during the supplier approval process, managing the traceability of Work-in-progress (WIP) and rework materials, and the differences between traceability exercises and mock recalls.

Episode 6: Traceability in GFSI

In the final episode of the series, we discuss the traceability and mock recall requirements for each of the major GFSI schemes: SQF, BRCGS, FSSC 22000, and PrimusGFS. Even if your facility does not operate under a GFSI scheme, this video includes helpful information for those considering implementing a best-in-class traceability program.

A traceability exercise is a test of a product through all stages of the traceability system from receiving, stock rotation, processing, packaging, and all the way through to finished product shipment. The most important activity during a recall is to establish clear documentation for every change of custody for each recalled lot of food products.
