Metrological Traceability

In order to guarantee the safety of food products, systems for traceability—from cultivation of raw materials to transporting, processing, packing, and shipping—are being strengthened every year. This is called "food traceability." Importance is also being placed on traceability in the world of measurement. This way of thinking is known as "metrological traceability" and refers to the initiatives used to prove the accuracy of the values of measurements performed every day.
