The Produce Traceabilty Initiative (PTI) is a voluntary, fresh produce industry-led effort to maximize and standardize the traceability of produce throughout the supply chain. The goal is for each case of produce to include barcodes with standardized product identification data that will trace that produce all the way back to the farm, if necessary.
PPI is a pioneer in this effort. We were one of the first produce processors of our size to implement electronic barcode tracking in 2012. We are committed to food safety and continue to stay on the forefront of this important initiative.
PTI is administered by the Produce Marketing Association, GS1 US, the United Fresh Produce Association, and the Canadian Produce Marketing Association.
