Abstract

The liberalisation of the European Union food market and the globalisation have increased the need of safety guarantees in the area of food safety. Consumers demand enhanced safety and hygiene assurance. Transparency, product quality and safety along the dairy supply chain could be reached by the application of specific standards and proper mechanisms such as traceability tools. The role of traceability is critical in supply chain management. With peculiar reference to the milk and dairy sector, Europe has a leading position in this area. The essential segments of each dairy supply chain can be easily identified, including dairy farms, dairy processing companies, wholesalers, retailers and the final consumers. With relation to the traceability of cheese products only, a joint work of the interested food business operators is implicit. In some situations, the system may have a ‘chain leader’ coordinating the whole food supply chain; alternatively, different food business operators may cooperate without a leading subject. It has to be noted that information technology-assisted software may be helpful in the management of similar systems. In addition, the authenticity of raw materials may be assessed at the analytical level. Finally, the role of some national institutions should be considered when speaking of traceability: the Italian example (mandatory declaration of milk origin on cheese labels) is discussed.
