RFID technology has become the safe bet for businesses specialising in food products. Thanks to this technology, product traceability is optimised (it can even be equipped with sensors for temperature control or weighing). In addition, it makes it possible to verify picking for shipments, guaranteeing customer satisfaction and avoiding errors and logistical costs.

Importance of traceability in the food industry

Good product traceability is important in any sector, but when it comes to the food sector, it is vitally important. Controlling where products are at any given moment helps to ensure food quality and to make important decisions in the event of a problem. For example, checking that there is no breakage in the cold chain when it can directly affect the quality of the product.

Improving supply chain management with RFID

RFID technology in food can provide complete, real-time knowledge of all products, from their origin to the point of sale. In this way, minimum food safety standards are guaranteed, both for the companies that buy these products and for the end consumers.

Where RFID technology adds value in the food sector

Undoubtedly, the traceability of food products through RFID has helped this sector, which can keep a better and greater control of products to ensure proper food safety based on current regulations.

Seeing in more detail some of these benefits:

● Identification of batches, boxes, trays, pallets, containers....
● The connection of the data reading system with the company's ERP or WMS allows the control of food products by means of dates, status, origin and other additional information.
● Traceability of what happens to each product in each of the processes that form part of the supply chain.
● Identification and traceability of perishable goods or those with special conditions.
● Identification and traceability of expired products or products that put people's health at risk.
● Verification of secured picking through RFID.
● Automated, quick and easy data collection in any management system.
