I had an ice company as a client, as you can imagine they were using a LOT of poly bags. They had a problem though, their supplier only showed an order number (maybe the same supplier) and we had them tell the supplier to either run the their order number along with a sequence code on each bag, or we would find a new supplier. The supplier stayed the supplier and not only could we track a Batch and/or LOT we could trace down to a single bag.
They also installed a PRIMS system as a part of an ERP system and now can track a box, poly bag or for that matter anything at all.
And by the way, the reason the ice company decided to be able to track down to a single bag was because they had an issue with freeze/thaw and corrosion of struts in the cube building - ultimately and technically "yellow ice" but not from someone pee'ing into the ice house - that happened only once that I can remember. They had a recall issue and ended up having to have each location dump ALL bags of ice - better to go after those offending bags than everything produced.
