For increased food safety.

The purpose of traceability is to be able to trace and follow a material or an object through all stages of poduction and distribution. In this way, you 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, and ensures consumer information along with placement of responsibilities, this contributes to improved food safety. 

At Alfotech, we stock a large range of components that comply with current legislation regarding traceability. We provide all materials with relevant documentation:

  • Material declaration of conformity
  • Material certificates with global and specific migration
  • Marking
  • Pressure test certificate
  • Batch number

Tracing Food Contact Materials (FCM) through the supply chain must be possible. Current regulations cover rules regarding traceability, for example for packaging, production equipment, and raw material for the production of FCM. Identifying from which and to which companies they have been delivered must be possible. Identification must be done via marking, relevant documentation, or information.

Hose couplings with batch number

At Alfotech, we supply hose couplings with batch numbers. In the picture you can see an example of a printed text. P08 means that the hose is pressure-tested to 8 bar. 23/08 means that the part was manufactured in week 23 in 2008. "Sukker nr. 2" is individual text chosen by the customer.

Keeping documentation for food contact materials for a period of 5 years is recommended, unless special circumstances may justify otherwise.
