About Us

The Produce Traceability Initiative, sponsored by Canadian Produce Marketing Association, GS1 Canada, GS1 US, and International Fresh Produce Association

Is designed to help the industry maximize the effectiveness of current traceback procedures, while developing a standardized industry approach to enhance the speed and efficiency of traceability systems for the future.

The PTI has a bold vision which outlines a course of action to achieve supply chain-wide adoption of electronic traceability of every case of produce.
