The food supply chain has become a complex global system consisting of small to large domestic and foreign manufacturers, processors, packers, distributors, and transporters with few common business practices. Con-sumers now expect year-round supplies of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as more exotic foods. This has increased the risk of a major food safety incident. Compliance with differing government regulations and enforcement policies adds to the complexity. With such a convoluted value chain with multifaceted reporting requirements, how can consumer-facing suppliers demonstrate regulatory compliance and protect their brands? Laboratory technology can play a key role in brand protection by efficiently managing test samples. Labora-tory information management systems (LIMS) facilitate end-to-end traceability of samples and products and all associated laboratory process-es; providing a central repository for data and test results for increased traceability and regulatory compliance.
