PTI Compliance

January 14, 2013 5:18 am0 commentsViews: 10

PTIPTI compliance guidelines require companies to have proper traceability systems in place. These systems must accurately track all products at the case level from harvest through customer shipment.

PTI compliance guidelines require that each member of the supply chain tracks every case of produce that they receive and/or ship. This requires systems that accurately track all products at the case level from harvest through customer shipment.

In order to achieve standardized whole chain traceability, the member must:

  • Apply a PTI label containing the GTIN, lot number, and PTI voice pick code
  • Apply hybrid pallet tags to outbound shipments
  • Track who receives what shipped product
  • Record source and pack lot information
  • Maintain electronic traceability records

This traceability information allows members of the supply chain to trace product forwards and backwards, and to isolate suspect product in the case of a recall. It also gives supply chain members the ability to quickly pass traceability information to the FDA during foodborne illness investigations.
