Symbology, Inc. will exhibit their PTI (Produce Traceability Initiative) barcode solutions at the PMA Fresh Summit conference this October in Atlanta, GA.

Symbology, Inc. will be a first time exhibitor at the 2011 PMA Fresh Summit conference in Atlanta, GA. An expert in barcode technologies, Symbology will feature their PTI (Produce Tracking Initiative) Solutions. Offerings include consulting, label solutions and custom designed label application tools.

The Produce Traceability Initiative is jointly sponsored by leading associations PMA (Produce Marketing Association), United Fresh Produce Association, and Canadian Produce marketing Association, coordinating efforts with GS1. The produce industry’s PTI goal is to provide for supply chain-wide case level electronic traceability in 2012.

“Many produce growers and packagers are struggling to understand and implement PTI in a cost effective way.” says Ted Schultze, Symbology, Inc. President. “Our strength and value is that we can help them wade through the complicated technical requirements, evaluate available traceability methods, and put PTI into place with the lowest cost and greatest added benefit.”

Symbology’s long experience with sequential barcode labeling is a natural fit with the Produce Traceability Initiative efforts, as tracking occurs via specially sequenced barcode labels on cases and pallets. The company will recommend the best sequencing strategy and best labeling method for each client. Options vary greatly according to the individual grower’s size and processes.

Users wish to comply with the tracking guidelines, but naturally don’t want to add costs to their process. Desire for cost effectiveness and ensuring data accuracy draws clients to Symbology.
