Last month, the FDA announced the 12 winners of it’s Low or No-Cost Tech-Enabled Traceability Challenge, which was part of the New Era for Smarter Food Safety initiative. The initiative aims at achieving end-to-end traceability throughout the supply chain, and the goal of the challenge was to develop creative low- to no-cost solutions that enable food companies of all sizes to achieve full traceability.
