ScoringAg runs a web-based computer database system that offer’s all retailers access to extensive traceback records, pictures, and or video information for origin traceability, of individual item’s, clamshell’s, case’s, bins, containers, fruits, vegetables, meats, and all other grocery products and ingredients. This gives retailers Country of Origin (COOL) law compliance labeling, traceability, and consumer’s peace of mind with the speed of a mouse click to search for each unique SSI-EID item’s code that displays real time product data for required audit traceback.
Using ScoringAg’s unique SSI-EID traceback product codes, RFID codes, or 2-D barcodes printed on each clamshell or product, handlers at all levels of the distribution chain -- including buyers -- can learn about each product’s Country of Origin, certifications, good agricultural practices performed, and audits via a store or home computer or internet cell phone in real time. There is no need to wait for audit or certification information for traceability from producers or food chain suppliers and handlers as information can be recovered within seconds by each store. ScoringAg records enable wholesalers, retailers, restaurant chefs, and buyers to decide what country of origin, and quality of purchases they want. As the records can't be falsified or changed once data is entered into the worldwide database, as there is documentation and a source verification of all movement and document records using the principals of the US. code 21 CFR part 11.
ScoringAg is the only worldwide standardized record keeping system where the records move with the product through its coded PIDC location and labeling code system.
HACPP, GAP’s, BMP’s, FDA Bio-Terrorism rules, field and handling audits, and other food safety quality control systems, helps conventional, natural, and organic grown products with all kinds of certifications, mostly at the producer, processor levels, but doesn’t prevent recalls as recent events have shown. Certifications, lot numbers, and branded labels do not provide an item level traceback of documents for products from shelves to the field or the original source production site in real time. Third party certification’s, BMP and GAP field audit’s with the ScoringAg’s audit trail verification record-keeping system has regained consumer confidence while providing full item level traceability in seconds to retailers no matter the number of mixed lots in produce bins.
Recalls if needed are site-specific, time-specific, handler-specific and item-specific as to not disrupt the total food chain supply as to what happened in the spinach, melon, and the latest meat and food product recalls. This record-keeping and database system allows all trade buyers to purchase anywhere with safety and to use the recall system anytime it’s deemed necessary. The web-based recordkeeping system can also archive records as required by the COOL law by retailers for 1 year after the sale of all covered commodities sold within the regulatory requirements.
The industry does not need more food safety laws, government regulations and inspectors, what is needed is ScoringAg’s time stamped activity database with daily documentations by each food handler to prove compliance throughout all the complete food supply chain of activities, including transportation as built and provided by ScoringAg for COOL. The secure barcode and SSI-EID label system can be printed directly from the database in real time anywhere. Field stickers on product can be printed where ever product is located or handled using standard label printers whether RFID or not from plain sticker tape directly from the web-based database.
Having a traceback record keeping system in place provides traceback information within seconds by knowing the audit path of handlers whether from the initial production field or from commingling other fields or products in retailers display cases to the final package that the consumer buys. Food growers, buyers, importers, and processors with retailers will now face the toughest questions of food origin and quality, and their biggest challenges now is the Country of Origin Labeling requirements and renew loyalty in their customers food purchases by having full traceability to prove COOL on each packaged or loose product.
