The purpose of traceability is to be able to track and follow a material or an object through all stages of manufacturing and distribution. In this way, one can ensure a targeted withdrawal of illegal products and provide relevant information to consumers as well as control authorities. As traceability facilitates control, recall of dangerous products, ensures consumer information, and placement of responsibilities, this contributes to increase food safety.
At Alfotech, we stock a large range of components that comply with current legislation. We provide all materials with relevant documentation:

It must be possible to trace food contact materials through the supply chain. Current regulations lay down rules regarding traceability, for example for packaging, production equipment, and raw material for the production of food contact materials. It must be possible to identify from which and to which companies food contact materials have been delivered. Identification must be done via marking, relevant documentation, or information.
