Traceability is essential to growth of SA agriculture

Traceability in South Africa’s food system holds a range of benefits for not only food producers but consumers as well. Justin Platt, founder and CEO of Zylem and RegenZ, highlights the importance of implementing end-to-end traceability in agriculture.

Traceability has become a crucial element of food safety and quality assurance in agriculture. International governments and consumers are increasingly concerned about the safety and validity of claims about the produce they import and consume.
