Melons harvested and packed in the Goodyear, Ariz., area for Del Monte Fresh Produce Inc. will soon have traceability labels created with software from TrueTrac LLC, Salinas, Calif.
TrueTrac officials said in a news release that the Coral Gables, Fla.-based produce company signed an agreement to use LabelTrac and HarvestTrac software modules for case labeling to meet milestones for the Produce Traceability Initiative.
TrueTrac president Ray Connelly said in the release that the mobility and flexibility of TrueTrac’s traceability products are well suited to Del Monte’s large-scale operations.
M.D. Marlin, Del Monte Fresh vice president for corporate packaging, said the company’s melon team tested PTI solutions from several providers before opting for the TrueTrac products. Added value in the TrueTrac program, including training support, field pack expertise and data integration capabilities, helped the company win Del Monte’s business, Marlin said in the release.
