How to Scale Lot Codes and Identify Locations

Tune into the GS1 presentation at the 3-minute mark.

Key Takeaways

  • Supply chains must ensure they have globally unique IDs for their products and locations, to ensure their data doesn’t get confused with other products or locations during FSMA 204 traceability conducted by customers or the FDA  
  • GS1 offers scalable standards for product traceability lot codes, called “Global Trade Identification Numbers,” or, “GTINs”
  • GS1 offers scalable standards for location IDs, called “Global Location Numbers,” or, “GLNs” 
  • GS1 standards can be used inside CTE records in Provision

The beauty of Provision is that the CTEs you capture can be unified with any other compliance information you’re already capturing. So as a grower, you can have one harmonized tool for everything from seed and spray records to CTEs for FSMA and any other information your suppliers or audits require.
