Track & Trace

Exwold is pleased to announce that its “Track & Trace” project has been a huge success since it went live in December.

Agrochemical Track and Trace is a way of protecting human health, helping to ensure residues on our foods are below set limits. It enables products to be followed from production to the field. It also helps in the fight to prevent counterfeiting, which can be a serious problem for agrochemicals, potentially risking health and causing economic damage.

In 1992, the European Plant Protection Authority (ECPA) developed the system called CRISTAL (Communicating Reliable Information Systems to Agriculture and Logistics) to allow digital traceability throughout the EU. In 2016, SC Trace became mandatory in France and other countries continue to implement this.

CRISTAL common practice for coding is based on the widely used standards across industries called GS1.

As a contract manufacturer to many of the world’s leading Crop Protection companies, Exwold packs hundreds of tonnes of granules each year going directly to distributors throughout Europe. To maintain our status as a major supplier, it is critical that we meet and comply with the industry standards and requirements.
