Traceability enables to track the movement of a food product through the various stages of production, processing, and distribution. It helps to identify the sources, recipients, and transporters of the food products. The purpose of tracing food products during each stage of supply chain from retail stores to farms is to find the source of contamination in the increasing incidents of adulteration and contamination of food products causing serious health threats. Growing foodborne diseases and food adulteration incidents and increasing concern for food safety among consumers & governments are contributing to an increase in the adoption of food traceability systems, globally.

The global market has been segmented on the basis of technology into RFID technology, GPS, barcodes, infrared, and biometrics. The market has been segmented on the basis of end users, which includes manufacturers, warehouse, retailers, and government departments. On the basis of application, the food traceability market has been segmented into meat products, fresh food produce, dairy products, beverages, seafood products, and others such as grain, oilseed, and coffee. The market has been segmented on the basis of regions into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Rest of the World (RoW). The key countries of regions are also studied.
