Traceability gets a boost with the launch of a secure network

The OnTrace Verified Network enables members to share information on tracking agricultural products. At the same time, the federal-provincial Traceability Foundation Initiative is offering $21.5 million in funding to support agri-food traceability


Traceability, the ability to follow food products through all stages of the Ontario agri-food chain, took two big steps forward over the summer.

In June, OnTrace Agri-food Traceability, the non-profit organization that maintains a provincial agricultural premises registry for animal health emergencies, announced that it had launched a secure network, OnTrace Verified Network. For a fee, members can share information for tracking.
