PLM Product Data Record Is Key To Unlocking Traceability

IT Enablers

This Food Manufacturing article explores how F&B companies can enable traceability and guarantee compliance by implementing a product lifecycle management (PLM) system to manage the product data record.

In my last column, we looked at why having a system of traceability is so important for enabling Food and Beverage (F&B) companies to mitigate the risks of contamination and recalls. It didn’t take long to find more examples that reinforce this need. In the first few weeks of May alone, we’ve seen recalls of romaine lettuce and sprouts due to bacterial contamination, as well as beef containing the Invermectin anti-parasitic drug.
