Hi everyone ,
I am looking for some advice as to traceability of our maize meal. Our operation works as follows. We have 24 members (farmers) who each have to supply a set amount of Wmaize a year according to their share. The maize is delivered to the local Co- op and all stored in two silo's where we then draw from as we mill. Thus I cannot determine who's maize it is once in the silo. And we do not do the grading of the raw product the Co Op does. I only have the delivery doc. with grading etc. for each load delivered , but everything goes into the two silos. Where does our traceability chain end then? At storage?
Our product is then packed and distributed to One Group of Stores within our province. We issue a dn and invoice per store, but there is 32 tons per load i.e 32 pallets which could be devided between three stores. We don't have batch numbers on each pallet as each bag is printed with the prod date, exp date and shift number. The pallets are wrapped thus there might be two batches of product on one pallet if pallet was only half filled at shift change over. How do I link the pallets to the invoice and store?
