  • Implications Of The Upcoming USDA Strengthening Organic Enforcement Rule

    The new Strengthening Organic Enforcement (SOE) Rule, which went into effect in March 2023, seeks to reduce fraud in the organic marketplace, improve the USDA’s enforcement protocols, and enhance oversight of organic producers, handlers, and certifiers. Though the rule will require action for many businesses and organizations, these changes will ultimately create a more unified, trusted, and transparent organic supply chain.

  • Addressing A Lack Of Transparency In Green Claims

    The rise in consumer awareness and demand for greater transparency has led to changes in regulations worldwide. In response to greenwashing in the food sector, as well as other industries, regulatory authorities are stepping up efforts to hold organizations accountable for their green claims.

  • Smart Irrigation For Agriculture Leads To More Efficient Carbon Capture

    Farmers are key to carbon capture, though many plans to reverse greenhouse gas emissions — such as the one described in Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's 2020 report on California's efforts, Getting to Neutral — largely ignore them.

  • Innovation In Water Remediation: Specialized Electrocoagulation For Water Hardness Removal

    Hardness in water can be characterized into its primary constituent mineral components, typically calcium and magnesium. Excess water hardness in a water supply creates many issues for industry, utilities, and life in general.

METTLER TOLEDO‚Äč Track and Trace Aggregation Benefits

Simplifying the shipping of products requires aggregation to a higher packaging level. If the parent-child relationships are stored via the serial numbers during aggregation, it is also possible to track individual packages across the supply chain. Each aggregated group is assigned a parent code, creating an e-pedigree for each item. Cases or pallets can be further aggregated into shipping containers.

As pieces are added or removed, the association between the individual item and the aggregated code can be altered. This is managed through data entry on the software interface. Movement of each product is recorded from its creation on the production line, through to the warehouse of a wholesaler, and eventually the point of sale where the product's authenticity can be verified. Our PCE Line Manager software features a highly configurable aggregation process that supports manual and automated aggregation of pharmaceuticals. We also offer standalone or integrated aggregation solutions designed to fit into your existing production process.
