Consumer demands and government regulations to combat seafood mislabeling and minimize the flow of product from illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing in the supply chain have made traceability critically important.
The challenge for seafood distributors is to deploy an automated, cost-effective approach that’s a good fit for current business operations. Seasoft helps you meet the challenge head-on. With Seasoft, you’ll sell more by providing customers with the security of traceability, and position your business for compliance with global traceability initiatives.
Seasoft’s enhanced lot control with barcodes track every product, product movement and transformation, and record it electronically as it happens. For all shipped products, Seasoft can identify the sources of the materials back to the received incoming products, saving considerable time and money in a food safety recall while demonstrating compliance with food safety protocols.
In production environments with multiple steps that must be recorded for product identification, Seasoft maintains serialized tracking of all raw materials and finished products. The outputs of each step in production becomes the inputs of subsequent processes, so you can quickly trace product back to its source materials.
Shellfish demand in the market has increased, and along with it, the requirement to correctly label and track all shellfish received and sold. Seasoft generates bar code labels that include harvest locations and dates for every bag of shellfish that is received. The labels can be scanned when a bag is broken, generating re-shipper labels that carry all necessary information.
When a bag is scanned to a customer order, all data pertaining to the shellfish is carried through to the order and printed on the customer invoice. As with all of the products managed by Seasoft, there is complete forward and backward traceability for all of the shellfish.
