Traceability and Food Safety

Traceability is a risk management tool that is used in containing a food safety problem.

Traceability applies to all food businesses in the food chain, even those giving away food and drink. All must keep records of their suppliers and any business customers.

Traceability regulations apply to food/drink and contact materials (packaging).

What records must you keep and what practical measures must you take in order to effect a product withdrawal or product recall if required as a result of a food safety incident.
