Benefits of traceability system

Croesllan Catering, a family business, said it is seeing the benefits of using the Stevens Meat Traceability system recently installed at its Llandysl site in Wales.

The Vantage System provides precision weighing while ensuring products are accurately traced - from entering the factory to dispatch.

Croesllan has a wide customer base, each with their own specific requirements. This in itself can pose difficulties in stock control, as well as product traceability. For example, an order may require a quantity of chicken breasts. To achieve this, the Vantage System calls up the required quantity of whole chickens but, of course, this process will create other components, such as leg and wing portions, which may need to go back into stock. The system effectively tracks the different components ensuring continuity throughout the chain.

The system can also be used as a stand-alone, self-contained module, or networked allowing optimum use of the weight data. It also boasts a fully-sealed, waterproof operator console which can withstand regular wash-down routines.
