Food Manufacturers/
Processors

For Food Manufacturers/Processors, the FSMA 204 ruling means another step forward in your continued quest towards food quality and safety perfection. At the minimum, to comply with FSMA 204, all you need is to capture Key Data Elements (KDEs) that support your Receiving, Transformation and Shipping Critical Tracking Event (CTEs).

Helping Food Manufacturers & Processors Address FSMA 204

Food manufacturers have a crucial role in ensuring the success of the FSMA 204 rule & the reason is simple. They are where key data elements like the TLC (Traceability Lot Code) and the TLC source originate. These identifiers about a specific food item are critical in ensuring linkages as the food item moves across the supply chain all the way to the final retail establishment. Even before these TLCs are created, manufacturers must capture all relevant info about the ingredients that go into the food, the details of the processing/ manufacturing (Transformation CTE), and then finally capture the shipping KDEs of the food item to your customers.

Food manufacturers dealing with FTL items need to address KDEs linked to the Receiving, Transformation and Shipping CTEs.
