WHAT IS THATCSQA offers EASY TRACE, a digital solution for traceability management that is simple to use, adaptable to customer needs and open to supply chain operators, in order to trace the flows of materials from the field to placing them on the market and allow for the execution of "just in time" mass balances.
This system can be used by supply chains for a systematic control of stocks aimed, for example, at the "rotating pledge" and can be a tool for simplifying and making field checks more efficient with respect to ISO 22005 .
CSQA is able to support companies or associations by providing a digital platform for traceability in the agri-food sector.
The digital platform was initially designed and is used to manage the Designations of Origin and today enhances this experience thanks to the evolution of the system, in fact it can be applied to any supply chain and allows for the tracking and management of the different value aspects requested by the consumer and, more generally, by the stakeholders.
KEY POINTSThe CSQA digital platform allows you to:
- manage the personal data of the subjects involved with the relative roles within the supply chain;
- record the data relating to the passages between the different actors;
- facilitate and speed up communication between subjects within the supply chain;
- provide significant information on the processes of the supply chain;
- through customizable dashboards provide trends and statistics in real time;
- transferring the identified value elements to the final consumer and stakeholders (also through tools such as QR codes and/or dedicated Apps);
- objectively support the story connected to the product to be valued.
CSQA's modular approach allows customers to choose up to which point to deepen the control of their reference supply chain, guaranteeing at all times the consistency of the traced data and their eventual inalterability.
Below are some examples of relevant topics for which the adoption of these services brings a particular benefit.
FRESHNESS AND QUALITY OF FOODInformation such as origin and provenance of raw materials, harvest date, transport conditions and storage temperatures, qualitative characteristics of the finished product, thanks to end-to-end traceability can be managed in real time, promoting the efficiency of the supply chains and correct communication to the interested parties.
REDUCTION OF FRAUDThe use of Blockchain technology combined with digital traceability and an Assurance activity conducted by a third party
qualified as a CSQA, it allows for greater surveillance of the various players in the supply chain, while promoting accountability of the subjects involved and a potential reduction in the incidence of food fraud. All this also benefits the final consumer and corporate reputation.
SUSTAINABILITYThe agri-food sector has always been a pioneer on issues related to sustainability.
Today, thanks to these services, farmers, producers and other players in the supply chain can automatically digitize and share
easily endorsements, certificates and other documents, demonstrating that they use and promote sustainable and ethical practices. By tracing each phase of the food chain and sharing data and documents on a verified immutable register, the participants in the ecosystem can guarantee their promise at all times, declared to the final consumer. The strategic projects for the valorisation of the products or of the various initiatives promoted by the organizations find greater authority according to the levels of control and third-party Assurance applied.
The ultimate goal that CSQA proposes through these services is to bring the consumer ever closer to complex issues such as those relating to the values underlying the concept of sustainability, through a verified, certified and at the same time understandable story because it is written in a non-technical language.
