Trace Register expands Asia presence
Global food traceability company Trace Register on Friday announced it has partnered with The Food School in Thailand to expand its presence in Asia.
The companies have launched a traceability training course for shrimp processing plants, farms and hatcheries in Thailand. The course is being offered to establishments that have attained Best Aquaculture Practices certification.
Two public courses and four in-house sessions have been scheduled from 14 to 24 September, covering three key Thai shrimp processing and farming regions — Samut Sakhon (central), Surat Thani (southern) and Samut Prakarn (eastern).
The courses have already attracted more than 110 participants from processors, farms and hatcheries.
Trace CEO Phil Werdal said the partnership with The Food School “strengthens our local presence and significantly enhances our Thai language support.”
“The transparency required of supply chain traceability depends on seamless links between supplier and buyer, producer and end-user,” he added. “For this reason, the extensive value that The Food School can deliver for us in Thailand will be good for everyone concerned.”
