Animal Food Safety Traceability System Solution Based on RFID Technology

The animal food safety traceability system includes many links from “farm” to “consumer”, including: farms, transportation logistics, slaughterhouses, logistics and warehousing, supermarkets and consumers.


After the farm animals are born, the farm management platform generates a unique “production identification code” and registers the information in the food safety data center to establish a database of individual animal information. The batch, feed, immunization, quarantine and other conditions of the livestock during the feeding process are recorded in the food safety data center through the management platform.


The basic information and logistics of the logistics enterprise are registered in the food safety data center through the logistics transportation management platform. At this point, the RFID tag of the breeding link can still be used as the unique identifier for management.


The slaughterhouse can monitor the production process according to the identification of the livestock, and each link is registered in the data center through the slaughterhouse management platform. The livestock in the slaughterhouse were slaughtered and divided. The pre-segment management platform reads the "production identification code" of the meat to be segmented, and generates a plurality of "slaughter identification codes" according to the quantity to be divided, and each slaughter identification code corresponds to the corresponding segmentation part.


Through the management platform, the basic information of logistics, basic information of storage, logistics temperature of multiple time nodes, storage temperature and other information are summarized to the information center to realize the individualized process management of animal food in the logistics and storage.


Meat in the supermarket is continued to be split. The supermarket management platform reads the "slaughter identification code" of the organic RFID tag identification, and automatically generates a plurality of identification codes according to the division. The "user identification code" and "slaughter identification code" are registered in the data center and a corresponding relationship is established. The "User Identification Code" is marked on the label. The number of "user identification codes" is very large and can only be used with 2D barcodes or organic RFID tags.


The consumer can query the "user identification code" of the product through the public inquiry system according to the user's two-dimensional barcode or organic RFID tag provided by the supermarket. Then query the information of the supermarket and trace back to the "slaughter identification code". Learn about meat transportation, warehousing information, production information in slaughterhouses, and can be traced back to the “production identification code” of meat. The "production identification code" can be used to query the transportation and sales information of the livestock, the information of the feeding link, and the like. Consumers can trace the entire meat production process from the end product.

According to the characteristics of each link and its requirements for label technology, organic RFID is expected to replace inorganic RFID in slaughterhouses and transportation warehousing. For animals with shorter breeding time, organic RFID can also be used in breeding and logistics transportation. Organic RFID or two-dimensional labels are available for use in supermarkets. The use of organic RFID will greatly reduce the cost of animal food traceability, thereby promoting the widespread use of animal food traceability technology.
