Integrated Produce Traceability, GP Graders Leads the Field

08 May 2006

Australian based grading manufacturer GP Graders (Victoria) Pty Ltd have recently announced the acquisition of traceability software developer, Freshtrack Software. All GP Graders grading lines now encompass an integrated traceability system within the grading software as a standard feature. GP Graders are the first grading manufacturer to offer packing houses this complete solution and are leaders in the field with patented technology supporting the integration.

Traceability of fresh produce has been made a lot easier with this single integrated solution. Freshtrack Gateway software caters for owner packers and contract packers by recording orchard lot and grower details on delivery. Variety, tare weight, pick date are all recorded and bin dockets generated before produce is sent to cool rooms.

Batch runs are graded with the system generating carton labels from small printers set between each packing station. Labels are generated by push buttons or by staff wearing RFID wrist bands, allowing traceability of each staff member’s pack quality, and efficiency.

Cartons or plastic crates are palletized and a pallet docket generated according to the needs of the retailer. Pallet dockets may be RFID or bar coded. Transporter and retailer are recorded and pallets are dispatched which means produce can be traced through the entire supply chain, down to the orchard lot, from the retailer.

The palletizing module allows for easy tracking of cartons to pallets either with an inline scanner or a handheld scanner. These details can be used to produce a freight manifest.

Freshtrack Gateway is being used in large and small operations, from one grower to enormous contract packers. It is used throughout Australia, in approximately 50 pack houses and in South America and Europe.
