Sustainability and safety concerns have driven consumer demand for seafood companies to consider the traceability of their products. Traceability in seafood includes fraudulent substitutions, sourcing, overfishing, and recall. Recalling seafood and creating systems where a company can determine exactly where contamination occurred is not only important for consumer peace of mind, but also company efficiency.
Technology like SIMBA software utilizes QR codes, RFID tags, and IBM blockchain to quickly and efficiently organize data to better understand the route of seafood from ocean to a customer’s plate. Learn more in the recent post on seafood traceability by Seafood Source.
