Industry calls for the use of GS1 standards to enable Traceability!

Senior food and retail industry experts have shared their view on the future of Traceability, the need in Interoperability and a crucial role of GS1 to lead cooperation of all parties for the future of Traceability!

 

Veronique Discours-Buhot

Director of GFSI:

"There are already a lot of systems in place. What we need is not to replace those systems by only one. We need to make them speak together. We need to build an interconnection between them and to build a common language in order to make them work all together. It is definitely a role for GS1!"

Anita Scholte op Reimer

Vice President Quality, Food Safety and Sustainability, AH/Ahold Delhaize:

"The consumer is asking for more and more transparency and I think this is where in the end the solution will go to and where GS1 will play a crucial role."

Anthony Huggett

Vice President, Head of Quality Management, Nestle, Switzerland:

“Our vision is to have complete visibility across the whole value chain, the value network in real time. We must also make it open to be able to use many different systems. There is a key word: interoperability.”

Emmanuel Delerm

Director of Organisation and Methods, Carrefour, France:

"Traceability is a matter of sharing data and processes to produce products at a reasonable cost."

Pierre de Ginestel

Anthony Huggett

Vice President, Head of Quality Management, Nestle, Switzerland:

"Our vision is to have complete visibility across the whole value chain, the value network in real time. We must also make it open to be able to use many different systems. There is a key word: interoperability."
