Traceability Seminar 2017

GS1 New Zealand in conjunction with fTrace and SHPING would like to invite you to a half-day, easy-to-understand seminar that will provide you with an insight into the evolving traceability environment within New Zealand and globally, including the new Chinese regulations that portend what's coming worldwide.

Traceability of food and food products is no longer a “nice-to-have” or something that is only necessary on selected products. Food safety is increasingly important - consumers demanding more knowledge about the food they buy and an increasing number of markets imposing ever more stringent requirements.

What will you get out of the seminar?

  • An overview of the national and global traceability landscape and the 2017 Chinese traceability regulations.
  • Need-to-know information on current requirements both domestically and offshore.
  • Acquaint yourself with the tools and standards necessary for traceability best practice.
  • An opportunity to rub shoulders with service providers from New Zealand, Australia and Europe.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Germany’s Mark Zeller was Head of fTRACE and Traceability at GS1 Germany. Since July 2016, he has served as Chief Operating Officer of fTRACE GmbH, a 100% subsidiary of GS1 Germany providing a full supply chain traceability solution based on GS1 standards. This solution is already used by international FMCG retailers and brand owners in more than 25 countries.

  • Gennady Volchek1 is founder and CEO of SHPING (previously Authenticateit). He or one of his team will talk about SHPING - the first of its kind cloud based brand protection and marketing platform servicing clients worldwide.

  • Nick Allison, GM Government from GS1 New Zealand will update you on the national and global traceability scenarios, the Chinese regulations, trending issues and matters the food industry must address to maintain food safety and consumer confidence.
