Physi-Trace™ is a robust traceability system for pork. It works by identifying the trace elements of an unknown sample and comparing this with known reference samples.
Physi-Trace™ can be used effectively to validate the country, state and farm of origin of fresh pork and liver. For processed ham and bacon, it is used to verify if the product was made from Australian pork or not.
This system extends pork and product traceability to a final, unpackaged product, including pork that does not have any identifying labels.
