Considerations on Issues Concerning the Traceability of Agri-Food Resources

Diana Covaciu, Antonia Odagiu, Claudia Balint


Ensuring traceability is an important step forward in the process of ensuring food security, both in the sectors that use animal and plant resources. At the moment, consumers need to benefit from food safety, but also to know in detail the activities that compete to obtain superior quality food. The purpose of this study is to highlight the main aspects related to traceability systems and the advantages of their implementation in agri-food practice. The concept of traceability is a systemic one made up of a series of components that contribute to its implementation, namely those aimed at: the product, the production process, genetic aspects related to the origin of the product, inputs used in production, diseases and pests and last but not least issues related to measurements and quantification. The use of traceability in the agri-food sector has three important advantages, namely: ensuring agri-food security from a preventive perspective, safe agri-food practices and the opportunity to identify professional responsibility.
