Traceability Group Meets Tuesday

Today, in Atlanta, is the first meeting of the trade’s traceability initiative.

It is a milestone for the industry and one The Pundit has been dedicated to preparing the ground work for, for a very long time:

The Steering Committee was ultimately expanded to include all facets of the trade, and the group meeting in Atlanta is a powerhouse of industry professionals.

That doesn’t mean their task will be easy. We have a fractured and diverse business, and assuring traceability will not be easy.

It is, however, important. Until the industry can assure regulators and the public that food safety outbreaks can be identified and contained, there will be no solution to the trade’s food safety problems.

So those meeting in Atlanta do serve us all. Let us wish them God speed in their deliberations. Much depends on their sagacity.
