Small Scale Food Processor Association SSFPA

Traceability for Small- and Micro-Scale Businesses

February 26 and 27, 2013 | Hotel Delta Beausejour, Moncton NB

Markets are increasingly demanding that suppliers have a traceability system in place, especially for food products. However, the benefits of being able to trace goods are not limited to food products. Unfortunately, off-the-shelf traceability systems are typically too costly in both time and money, for small- and micro-scale businesses.

The objective of this workshop is to provide an overview of the tools and systems available to small- and micro-scale businesses. Participants will learn how to identify what information to record (i.e. what information is required versus that which can be considered ‘nice-to-have’). There will also be presentations on scale-appropriate traceability systems and the tools that can be used in support of the systems. Examples of digital tools etc. will be on display and participants will have the opportunity to discuss their use.

Who should attend

Small businesses looking to establish a traceability system regardless of their product line(s) can benefit from this session. It will be especially valuable to small- and micro-enterprises involved in the collecting, farming and processing of food, and non-traditional forest products aka Non-Timber Forest Products.
