From field, through pack house, to shipping, to grocery shelves, food traceability is imperative. For 3 plus growing seasons, Advanced Traceability Solutions (ATS) has been a pioneer in the agricultural industry, providing progressive, affordable and configurable technology solutions that ensure crops are tracked accurately, from field, orchard or grove through packing and processing facilities to grocers' shelves.
For labeling at the exact harvest location, ATS offers innovative mobile data collection solutions comprised of mobile PC with scanner and mobile printers that print labels automatically, listing exact GPS coordinates and timestamps, which enable growers to track crop, variety, crew, exact location, date and time, as well as other critical data that aids in securing food safety.
Don Edgar of New Limeco in Princeton, Florida touts Advanced Traceability Solutions, "Using ATS's Mobile PC with scanner and mobile Printer combined with Bar Code Cheat Sheets (crop, variety, grove ID and crew) saves time, increases accuracy and most importantly enables bins of raw product to be processed through packing facility via scanning of bar codes at each step of the process."
Doug Mason of Mason Farms in Williamson, New York compares traditional modes of tracking to Advanced Traceability Solutions’ innovative tools, “Before, we manually labeled apple bins and shipped directly from the orchard which was very difficult and mistake prone. Now, we ship directly from the field with customer required information and bar codes firmly secured to each bin. Plus, all the data on the mobile PC is easily sent to the master database for tracking—both for inventory and food safety purposes. Using ATS equipment could not be easier.”
