Retail Food Establishments
(Retailers/Grocers)

For RFEs, traditional industry challenges like tight margins, high transaction volumes, low shelf-life of perishables (i.e., need for speed to move items from receiving to POS), and lack of trained warehouse workers, have stalled many traceability initiatives in the past. FSMA 204 is different & TagOne has you covered.

Helping Food Retailers Address FSMA 204

The need for speed and a high degree of efficiency is real at food retailers & grocers. Speed in ensuring the trucks at the receiving docks are unloaded and cleared out asap, speed to move food items to the proper holding areas and then moving them, esp. the perishables to the store front so that consumers get the freshest food items. Basically ensuring speed and efficiency at every step.

When we add the need for comprehensive traceability to this environment, things can get a little tricky if not addressed pragmatically. With FSMA 204 mandating traceability based on specific new key data elements (KDEs) like Traceability Lot Code(TLC) & TLC source in addition to others like product description, quantity, UOM, location description, food retailers need to make sure they capture this data during their receiving. In addition depending on their business model, if they have a central kitchen they may need to capture transformation & shipping (Internal Transfers) KDEs. 

 

TagOne Compliance Link for FSMA 204 provides a comprehensive solution to Food retailers and grocers to easily capture KDEs related to their relevant CTEs via different data capture methods covered earlier. 

In addition TagOne's Compliance Cockpit will provide advanced reports like the ASN vs Receiving mis-match that will ensure      food retailers and grocers can easily manage by exception and always stay in compliance.
