2 Years and 1 Pandemic Later: The Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability Establishes the New Normal of Traceability
SENA 2020 marked the launch of the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) Standards, bringing the first-ever global standard for interoperable seafood traceability into a world that quickly shifted to a new normal way of living and doing business. Despite the immense challenges that businesses faced from the COVID pandemic, momentum has swelled over the past two years with industry and stakeholder support for the GDST Standards as supply chain transparency and traceability has become more important than ever. The GDST Standards are proving to be applicable for more than combatting illegal product from entering supply chains; they’re also supporting companies with critically important work like food safety and, in the U.S., preparing companies for the upcoming FDA Food Traceability Rule. In this session, the GDST Secretariat and industry panelists will highlight implementation success stories from companies around the globe, and dive into the exciting future of the GDST and traceability for the seafood industry. Now that the standards have been in use for two years, the GDST Secretariat will be introducing the next phase of exciting work in development. You won’t want to miss this session to learn about how your company can act now to stay at the forefront of this leading movement.
