The meat market is a demanding market not only in terms of quality and health certification but increasingly in terms of traceability
Meat market and tracability
The meat market is a highly demanding sector that requires not only high product quality and health certifications, but also increasing traceability. Consumers are increasingly concerned about the origin and production process of the meat they consume, as well as their food safety. That is why meat producers and sellers must ensure product traceability, from its origin to the final point of sale.
This traceability involves maintaining a comprehensive record of all production phases, from the food consumed by the animals to breeding practices and the medical treatment they receive, including the individual identification of each animal. This allows consumers to know the exact origin of the meat they acquire and verify that quality and food safety standards are met.
In addition, traceability also helps improve risk management and prevent outbreaks of epidemics or illnesses related to meat consumption, as it allows for the rapid identification of possible sources of contamination and the removal of affected products from the market.
In summary, traceability is a key element in ensuring food quality and safety in the meat market, as well as meeting the increasingly demanding expectations of consumers.
