In recent years there has been an increased focus on traceability in food supply chains. The European Union project Trace the origin of food (TRACE) is a joint effort between the food industry and solution providers and aided by research institutions.

The objective of this report was to analyse the specific technical and organisational changes which it would be necessary to implement at a chicken processor in order to significantly reduce the existing information loss within the chicken supply chain.

The current material and information flow of chicken processing was analyzed and recommendations of changes are made (both technical and organizational).
