Traceability Institute will hold its first executive summit

The Traceability Institute will hold its first executive summit to initiate consensus in achieving multi-system interoperability with the goal of accomplishing a more sustainable and safer US food supply chain.

The summit, “Traceability Interoperability Summit 2010,” will take place January 21-22 2010, in Denver. The day-and-a-half conference will consist of presentations and roundtable discussions, dialog and interaction among government agencies, vendors, partners, component manufacturers, systems integrators and industry leaders from the produce, animal agriculture and fresh food industries. Technology vendors involved in produce traceability, animal identification, cold chain and all other food supply chain market segments are expected to attend.

“This important event provides an objective and neutral platform for food industry leaders and solutions vendors in the traceability arena, as well as those exploring the traceability space, to come together to discuss how we as an industry reach interoperability,” said Miodrag Mitic, managing partner, Traceability Institute.
