Brewery Traceability: Why, What, and How to Get Started

Craft Brewers Conference 2022
Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota
Speakers: Heather Muzzy Caron

This seminar will focus on the three major components of a successful traceability program: labeling, tracking, and practicing tracing. It will cover these practices as they relate to the three critical tracking points: raw materials, in process batches, and finished goods. Examples of tracking will be shared that span the gap of very basic, paper-based methods to more advanced, software-based methods to meet the needs of a diverse audience. Mock tracing exercises will show how the pieces come together to ensure the raw materials can be traced forward to finished goods and vice versa.

Learning Objectives:

  • Why traceability is important for breweries
  • What needs to be tracked and documented for successful traceability
  • Labeling best practices to facilitate tracking
  • How to get started, including options for methods and tools
