More than ever, businesses in the food industry need to take all necessary measures to guarantee that their products are harmless. Traceability is therefore essential; it means that you can trace the history, use and location of a product, from its creation through to its destruction, using the latest identiﬁcation and communication technologies (RFID, tracking and tracing, Voice Picking, etc.). Now we need to make sure that anyone involved in handling foods along this chain is trained in these techniques! Since 2007, a programme called LogTraçAlim has been developing new training solutions that incorporate an original pilot project.
“LogTraçAlim focuses on using ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software and incorporates the traceability of several types of unit (article, box, pallet and container)”, explains project manager François Verdier. The exercise involves making, wrapping and packaging chocolate at the Formalim centre in Verviers and sending them to other FOREM logistics centres in La Louvière and Bierset. The chocolate is stored and repackaged there before being distributed. “This chain”, clariﬁes François Verdier, “means that people from diﬀerent areas of production and logistics learn about traceability and new technologies”.
