January 24, 2020 - Food Connex, a CAI Software company, today announced a powerful new Lot Control capability to help its customers track product from receipt through production to final shipment to retail operators and respond quickly to a food safety issue.
Frank Motta, executive vice president for Food Connex said, “If you have a food safety recall, acting quickly to remove suspect products from the supply chain minimizes consumer risk and helps protect your reputation. With Food Connex’s lot tracking, you’ll know instantly know who provided the product and who took delivery."
Lot tracking can be as simple as receiving a lot into inventory and selling and shipping the entire lot to a single customer. Recipe-based, value-added processing, or product that is received, cut into portions and then combined with other ingredients to manufacture a finished product can be more challenging. With Food Connex, Lot Control items that undergo multiple production processes are assigned unique lot numbers -- while retaining a record of the original lot number -- so you can quickly pinpoint recalled product.
“Food Connex makes it easy to trace an item from a customer invoice back to its original purchase order,” Motta added. “Specially designed user screens let you quickly view all of the information from an original PO to identify the specific production processes the item has undergone, along with a complete accounting of where the finished product has been sold or stored.”
