farm to fork traceability (1)


The US Food and Drug Agency (FDA) requests technology providers, and other stakeholders from around the world to develop traceability hardware or software or analytics platforms, that are low cost or no cost to the end user. This is in response to last year's FDA proposed a new rule, that will lay the foundation for 'farm-to-table' traceability across the US food industry. The FDA will accept submissions of such systems from June 1 to July 30, and is hoping to announce up to 12 winners at the end of the challenge period. No cash prizes will be awarded, but the winners will have the opportunity to present their work publicly in a webinar planned for September.
