Canadian manufacturers are waking to the fact that traceability is no longer a competitive advantage – it’s now a requirement. The Canadian food and beverage manufacturing industry is changing, becoming more tightly regulated through the Safe Food for Canadians Act and the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR), and more complex as Internet-based technology shifts the way businesses along our global supply chain communicate and work. At the same time, consumers are calling for increased transparency with easier access to information about how products are made.
All of this means that food and beverage manufacturers are facing greater and more diverse challenges. Not only must they ensure their products are safe and compliant with the new food regulatory and inspection regime, but they must also now be able to meet consumer demands for information, work more collaboratively with their value chain, and explore more creative ways to remain competitive.
