At Barry Callebaut we systematically keep track of all incoming goods. Raw materials, semi-finished articles and end products can be traced at all times. We can guarantee top-down traceability as well as bottom-up traceability.
- Top-down traceability: we can trace back all the raw materials that were used to make a given end product to their individual lot number, supplier or arrival date.
- Bottom-up traceability: for each batch of raw material, we can trace all the end products that were made out of it. We can even identify the customers to whom these products were supplied.
