AIFST 2021 Virtual Convention Session: Traceability

Presented by FIAL

Wednesday October 20th, 10:30 - 12:30pm AEDT Sydney time

Knowing the origins and the journey food has taken is increasingly important to consumers, with many expecting that information is readily available via their mobile device. At the same time, providers of food and ingredients are rapidly adopting IT and data capture solutions to better manage their production, costs, inventory, logistics and food safety. We regularly hear about sensors, digital supply, IoT and other references to gathering data, but how might the future of data capture and management look? What are the future needs that will drive data collection and insights? What future options are there to deliver the traceability and transparency of the journey our food takes?

Join industry experts to hear their insights into the possible future of data needs, data capture and the opportunities that offers in production, packaging and e-commerce. The insights will be followed by a panel with the experts available to answer questions.
