Commercial application of supply chain integrity and shelf life systems

Meat & Livestock Australia has released a report highlighting the red meat industry’s need to “catch-up” to other food category managers who are monitoring their supply chains more closely in a bid to improve food safety and quality and protect brand integrity. Adopting Escavox technology and analysis is highlighted in the report as an effective way for the industry to sharpen its supply chain performance.

One of the key findings, in the chains measured, was that shelf life of vacuum skin packed (VSP) meat is considerably longer than current industry ‘Best Before’ dates and there is a risk of product being marked down or destroyed too quickly.
