Résumé: The first paper outlines the framework for traceability, devised by FoodTrace, and discusses approaches to managing supply chain and cross-supply chain traceability in the food industry. The advantages of adopting a standardised approach are discussed, and guidelines that promote this approach are highlighted. The second paper provides a brief overview of Quality Control, Quality Assurance, Quality System and Traceability, explaining how they differ and the terminology involved in each. Consideration is also given to the art of risk management; reliability of a traceability system; probability of failure; spread (impact) of a recall; cost benefit criteria and analysis; actions and initiatives in Canada; the Electronic Commerce Council of Canada, which promotes and maintains global standards for identification of goods; components of food manufacturing processes and basic structural internal elements of quality and trace systems; and automatic identification and data capture (AIDC).
