Food Traceability (Lot Tracking)

Discover the significance of precise monitoring of food items with the help of lot tracking software for food traceability. Having proper food distribution software with traceability capability can enable your business to efficiently follow the journey of an item throughout the entire supply chain in the event of a recall, and to assist with adhering to worldwide trade regulations and consumer protection laws.

Lot tracking is not only vital in ensuring food safety, but it also aids in achieving compliance with various regulations set out by the FDA, USDA, Health Canada, and other government agencies. Wholesale food distributors must have proper lot tracking capabilities within their software in order to improve food safety, comply with regulations and expand their operations.

The new Windows program has clearly made a difference in speed within the BL environment just as you said it would. I would like to thank you very much for all your help! You patiently explain everything to us and do a great job helping us to fix issues (like the ones we had today) when we need it!

Different Types of Food Distribution

Food distribution businesses can deal with a variety of product types – from fresh produce, to dairy, meat and cheese products, to frozen items, to confectionery-type products, to canned goods. Each type of food distribution business includes specific requirements for managing temperatures, lots, units of measure, and potentially production, cutting and repackaging.

While Blue Link ERP includes tools for distributors selling frozen, confectionary-type and canned goods, our software does not include catch weight functionality for managing food items with variable weights.
