This gives retailers Country of Origin (COOL) law compliance labeling, and documented audit trails, and consumerís peace of mind with the speed of a mouse click. A unique SSI-EID item level code that displays public information of real time product data can be applied to every clamshell, case, bin, container, single fruit or vegetable, package of meats or meat products, as well as all other grocery products and ingredients.

HACPP, GAPís, BMPís, FDA Bio-Terrorism rules, field audits, and other food safety quality control system documents of conventional, natural, and organic grown products with all kinds of certifications, mostly at the producer, processor, and importer levels are great, but they donít prevent recalls as recent events have shown. Certifications, lot numbers, and branded labels do not provide an item level coding for traceback of documents from grocers shelves to the field or source production site audits in real time. Third party certificationís, BMP and GAP field auditís with the ScoringAgís audit trail verification record keeping system regains consumer confidence while providing full item level traceability in seconds.
