The Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) is an industry-wide effort chartered by the Produce Marketing Association, United Fresh Produce Association, and the Canadian Produce Marketing Association, and is aimed at creating a traceability process that will enable the quick and efficient electronic tracking and tracing of produce cases between supply chain members.
Says John Herzig, President of Barcode Graphics: "Barcode Graphics has many years of experience producing and testing barcode labels, as well as providing barcode label solutions. We are pleased to have found in TraceGains a partner with, not only a range of current PTI offerings, but also receptive to developing additional complementary track and trace services for us to be able to offer. We feel this experience will prove valuable when assisting growers to best utilize TraceGains' PTI compliance software."
TraceGains' CaseTrace PTI software, now available across all of Canada from Barcode Graphics, installs on any PC and is a one-time investment to generate PTI-compliant GS1-128 style labels. The software also helps growers, packers, and shippers of fresh produce build and manage their GTIN catalogs, and to report their GTINs to their retail customers, as recently required by the seven-step Produce Traceability Initiative.
"We are very pleased that Barcode Graphics has joined our partner program," says Gary Nowacki, CEO of TraceGains, Inc. "BGI is in the unique position of being able to fulfill customers' labeling, scanning, printing, and now produce traceability needs. BGI is true one-stop shop that can rapidly and effectively provide all necessary sales and technical support, which is a true benefit to customers."
