OUR SERVICES - TRACEABILITY SOLUTIONS

When we work with companies to develop a trace-back program we first address the need. What drives them to tackle traceability? Is it to connect with consumers or to ensure supply chain compliance with customer demands and/or government regulations or both? What are the exact requirements and what results are expected by implementing traceability in their business? The answers to these questions form the fundamental basis for defining a plan of action within the operation.

How does Highland help?

Highland realized a need in the agricultural community for someone to help put the pieces together. Growers, packers and processors are busy with their day to day operations, and many don't have the resources to handle these issues. Highland bridges the gap between conventional packaging and smart, traceable packaging solutions. Offering sound, practical solutions our comprehensive approach includes education, identification, planning, training, implementation, and measuring results.

EDUCATION

We get you current on government food regulations and retail requirements. We also provide an analysis of available solutions and solution providers that support to your needs.

IDENTIFICATION

We help you identify the requirements and establish expectations for measurable results. Whether it is a consumer or supply chain oriented approach, we will systematically define the program.

PLANNING

Once the program is established, we work with you to develop a course of action to meet your needs in several areas: packaging and label intelligence, hardware and software requirements, administration and production processes and procedures, GTIN assignments, data synchronization, program evaluation metrics.

TRAINING

We will help facilitate comprehensive training on all plan requirements. We want you to realize the full benefit of your investment and we'll help train your staff, each step of the way.

IMPLEMENTATION

The final step is plan implementation. After all the necessary legwork has been completed and the staff trained you will begin actual implementation of the plan. This is where we'll be on site to help throughout the startup. We draw from our experience in the field to answer any questions you may have and provide technical assistance where needed.

MEASURABLE RESULTS

The program is only as good as it is used and you need to be able to show measurable results. From consumer responses, production reporting, quality assurance surveys, federal inspections and recalls, we can help you setup metrics that are important to you.
