What is a F.T. system?
It is a traceability system constructed from a bilateral communication chain between consumers and producers. Consumers can not only trace the agricultural product itself, but also understand the history of the agricultural product, including processes with respect to producer of the agricultural producer, goods consolidation market for concentrating and classifying goods, logistics distribution companies and marketing channels (supermarket, hypermarket, wholesale market etc.). Thus, We may call the process record from farm to dining table as “F.T. (food traceability) system”.

What is traceability system?
The “traceability system” is also named “F.T. system” in agricultural applications. As for agricultural products, it is a “traceable record of processes from production to sales of agricultural products”, namely, stages of production, process, distribution, sales etc. of products. Producers and distributors record data related to production/sales flows of foods in detail for consumers to trace the flows relating to production/sales of agricultural products and understand important information on various production cycles.

Why to promote F.T. system
The construction of F.T. system is not a paper work. The key point is not information system, but production & sales safety management, namely, actuality of recorded stages of operations. If the record is not true, no trust will be gained from consumers and the system will be destroyed and exist in name only. Therefore, coaching, supervision of agricultural affaires authorities, self management of farmers and effective control of farmer groups (especially production & sales class) are very important. We expect that the F.T. system may be promoted smoothly. The actual promotion of such system allows companies to record credibly for consumers to trace reversely, such that unsafe food abuse may be eliminated.

What is the importance of F.T. system?
With the increasing attention of consumers to food health safety, it has become an important issue in 21st century about how to guarantee “food” safety and “knowledge” right of consumers. F.T. system may be an important means for food safety management. Particularly, EU, U.S.A., Canada, Japan and Korea have promoted “F.T. system” substantially, which will become an international trend. Also it will be necessary for Taiwan to promote “safe agricultural industry” and develop agricultural product export.

What are the values of F.T. system introduction with respect to agricultural products?
1. Production area segmentation of agricultural products
2. Reduction of Risk and elimination of legal liability
3. Increase of information reliability
4. Improvement of agricultural product safety and business efficiency
