SafeTraces, a JBT global alliance partner, offers the miniDART, which provides the first and only on-food traceability solution for produce, liquid foods, and bulk goods using edible, invisible DNA-based barcodes that are applied directly to the product during regular processing. These unique DNA-based barcodes establish a direct link between the physical product and conventional product identification and labels vulnerable to tampering and error. The miniDART solution enables downstream partners to establish product provenance and authenticity with a simple test in minutes. The end result is a safer, more secure, and more transparent supply chain.
