Trustparency™

Trustparency™

The more we know, the safer we feel

The structure of any supply chain is complex and involves many players. Regardless of your industry, you may be vulnerable to counterfeits due to many factors such as manual inputs, no central database and no regulation clarity.

Industry 4.0 is a digital transformation in which you can leverage your data and ensure process efficiency, an improvement in quality and understand new customer requirements. The benefits of authentic products and supply chain transparency are constantly in demand.

You can now track any product from the point of production and the route it takes to reach the end user, is fast becoming as important as the product itself. Transparency is not just a trend; it’s the deciding factor for a sustainable future. Being transparent presents challenges as well as long term benefits. These benefits stem from customer safety and their trust of your genuine, safe and reliable products. Our knowledge and expertise for the application of technologies to ensure transparency has branched out into many industries to ensure transparent, trustworthy supply chains.

Trustparency™: the dialogue inside the supply chain


Demand for the security and transparency of products is affecting numerous industries. Guaranteeing the origin of your products is becoming the first requisite of safety and represents the first step for building customer trust. Tracking offers the opportunity to guarantee the transparency of the supply chain and is built on the foundation of supplying important product information for the duration of its lifetime. Traceability is connected to the tracking process and allows you to search for a specific event throughout the journey of the product. Today, the paradigm opens up towards the concept of serialization, an even more advanced level of Track & Trace. Serialization, therefore, verifies and reports identifiers of each single saleable unit which allows a more proactive management of product recalls in the face of critical issues and a real monitoring of the supply chain through real time geolocation. Implementing serialization processes allows connectivity between production lines and service systems. Serialization provides a digital passport for each and every traceable product.


For some industries, supply chain transparency is not a new concept. Due to heightened counterfeits penetrating the global market, public safety has been a growing concern. Regulatory compliance for serialization is actively developing as a consequence.

Our knowledge and expertise of product traceability within the pharmaceutical industry has led us globally into this expanding field. We can guarantee full traceability of the supply chain, ensure product integrity and safety and complete transparency including certification of origin, digital factory, networking of equipment, measurement of parameters as well as smart data management.

Necessary Virtue: Food


The food industry accounts for around 20% of global gross domestic product (GDP), with 40% of global labour force GDP engaged. Consumers are now becoming more aware of their food sources and ethics, challenging the food and beverage industries to introduce innovative technologies as these demands develop.

Today the food industry is undergoing a digital transformation that promises to change the destiny of nations. Sustainability, fair trade, contaminated food, origin, ingredients mix, nutritional data, animal welfare, precision farming, Big Data, IoT, waste, food recalls, public relations and reputation, e-commerce, are some of the most relevant issues. Food security remains a priority issue for consumers and all stakeholders in the supply chain. Furthermore, the percentage of food producers with global ingredients has multiplied by 400% over the last 10 years; almost 31% of all finished food products have ingredients from more than four countries. Tracking and accounting for these variables is a challenging process for both quality assurance and quality control for food producers globally.


The HACCP, Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, and the ISO 22000 standards, are used to control the wide variability and differences in food quality found among different nations. The recent legislation on traceability and serialization in the pharmaceutical field has contributed to increase the levels of communication and interoperability throughout the value chain. This health care is composed of producers, wholesalers, logistics, service providers, pharmacies, hospitals, sales points and assistance in health.

Like the pharma industry, a legislation in consumer goods is being introduced (or is expected due to fraud, adulteration, sophistication, alteration, counterfeiting is multiplying) with considerable consequences for public health, together with the associated costs. Either the market is regulated, or the consumer requires more protection.

We are getting closer to a new era of the Food Industry, where systems must also be able to manage the complexity of the huge amounts of information and data needed to track food in the long logistic journey, as it passes "from field to fork".
