Back in 2005, the precursor to the Mark was introduced as a tracking mechanism for property and animals. It was known as the National Animal Identification System. It had three pillars:
- All property belongs to the government and will be issued an alpha-numeric country code
- Electronic identification of all lifeforms on said property each being issued an alpha-numeric country code
- 24/7 surveillance
Courageous individuals and states introduced state legislation to block this intrusive regulatory proposal. Despite widespread opposition it was passed. A few years later becoming mandatory. As is the custom in government circles, when it became mandatory, the program changes its name to Traceability to harmonize with the international mandate from the United Nations. This program, from its inception, was applicable to humans as they are considered animals except in documents stating an exception.
Here is a repost from Food Safety News updating you on the program. It is critical to keep an eye on this as weaponized food was commanded and demanded in January by globalists, by the end of this year for all commercial available foods.
When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the New Era of Smarter Food Safety initiative in April 2019 and then released the blueprint in July 2020 outlining our goals, we put both in the context of doing our work differently, leveraging new and emerging technologies and approaches to create a safer and more digital, traceable food system.
We are taking two steps forward to do just that, working differently to enhance food traceability and support the use of technology to strengthen the food safety system.
On June 1, we will launch The FDA New Era of Smarter Food Safety Low or No-Cost Tech-enabled Traceability Challenge, asking stakeholders, including technology providers, entrepreneurs, and innovators, to develop traceability tools that can be implemented in a scalable, cost-effective way for food operations of all sizes.
And we recently launched a new quarterly podcast called TechTalk. The first installment, which posted on April 29, is about tech-enabled traceability. While the challenge is about new solutions, the podcast offers lessons learned, sharing experiences that food industry experts have had in developing industry-wide traceability initiatives to help keep food products safe.
The Traceability Challenge
Tech-enabled traceability – the ability to quickly track a food throughout the food system, from when it leaves its source to when it lands on your plate – is one of the foundational core elements of the New Era of Smarter Food Safety blueprint.
Achieving end-to-end food traceability will involve everyone in the supply chain – from source to table. To achieve that level of participation, we need accessible tracing solutions for human and animal food companies of all sizes. That means that we must help ensure that even small companies can use and benefit from new tracing technologies. Digitizing data at no or low cost through the use of creative financial models may allow the entire food system to get smarter together.
We’re asking food technology solution providers, public health advocates, entrepreneurs, and innovators across the human and animal food supply chain to present food traceability solutions that are affordable, create shared-value, and, thus, can scale to encourage widespread adoption.
When there’s an outbreak of foodborne illnesses, it’s critical to rapidly identify where the contamination originated. Doing so not only helps us prevent additional illnesses and potentially save lives, but it allows us to conduct better root cause analyses to prevent such outbreaks from happening again. It also may provide us with more detailed or specific information about the source of the contamination.
We also learned during the COVID-19 pandemic that further enabling a digitally traceable food system could help create the type of transparency needed to anticipate and help prevent supply chain disruptions in a public health emergency, thereby resulting in a more resilient food system.
The Low or No-Cost Tech-enabled Traceability Challenge is being overseen by the FDA’s Office of Food Policy and Response and administered by precisionFDA, which convenes community challenges and app-a-thons that galvanize dialogue and scientific discovery around technologies.
The challenge will invite submissions for tech-enabled solutions that address traceability needs and challenges faced by primary producers (such as entities involved in farming, fishing, and animal agriculture), importers, manufacturers and processers, distributors, and retailers and foodservice. There is a pre-registration web page that will be updated on June 1 at 8 a.m. ET with all the information needed to participate in the challenge until the submission window closes on July 30 at 5 p.m. ET. Up to 12 winners will be announced at the completion of the challenge.
While there is no cash prize, the challenge winners will gain significant visibility, including an opportunity to present their entry in a public forum hosted by the FDA. The food industry will gain new insights into how to solve traceability challenges, and the FDA will open the door to a conversation about finding new ways to overcome obstacles in the road to farm-to-fork traceability.
The TechTalk podcast is hosted by the FDA and focuses on cutting edge topics. Each quarter we will examine a different aspect of the New Era of Smarter Food Safety blueprint for which there are novel technological approaches and solutions. This podcast features top experts in the field involved in food safety and technology.
In the first installment in April, experts from the Institute of Food Technologists, FMI: The Food Industry Association, and the global standards organization GS1 discussed the role they envision new technologies playing in improving traceability, and the advice they have for food producers contemplating next steps in their traceability journey.
Future podcasts will explore the role of technology in the other New Era of Smarter Food Safety core element areas, including data and predictive analytics, e-commerce and retail food modernization, and food safety culture.
Doing our food safety work differently
Both the challenge and the podcast reflect how the FDA is approaching its food safety mission differently in the New Era of Smarter Food Safety, just as we have done in implementing the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). In developing and implementing the foundational FSMA rules, the FDA brought stakeholders to the table with an unprecedented level of outreach. With the New Era of Smarter Food Safety, the FDA is acting as a catalyst for change, seeking and distributing knowledge and bringing stakeholders together to find solutions.
We will always strive to keep consumers safe. But the process that leads to the kind of fundamental changes we’re talking about in the New Era of Smarter Food Safety blueprint is collaborative, recognizing that this is an evolution for the food industry. Thus, innovation that makes traceability more affordable may be the brainchild of innovators in the private sector. And lessons that can help companies envision using technologies to make their product safer may come from their counterparts in the food industry.
We invite you to learn more about the FDA New Era of Smarter Food Safety Low or No-Cost Tech-enabled Challenge, the TechTalk podcast, and the New Era of Smarter Food Safety initiative. Our ultimate goal is, and has always been, bending the curve of foodborne illness in this country by doing everything we can to prevent the contamination of foods.
One way to do that is to tap into the wealth of expertise and information that can be found in government, industry, academia and other resources in the public and private sectors. Working together, we will find the approaches we need to help ensure that modern advances in food and information technology are accompanied by modern advances in food safety.
If you follow the breadcrumbs it will lead you to a page called Precision FDA. That, my friends, is a weaponized FDA. Since they are the "agency" overseeing pharmacological products for humans, plants and animals this is troubling to say the least as it comes to us at a time when food is in process of being turned into a pharmacological weapon.
Any time you see the word Precision it is code for two things:
- Genetically based to the molecular level
FDA Grand Challenge
Walking in the steps of the DARPA Grand Challenge that was so successful the FDA created their own challenge with a two-fold objective:
- Get new tools for their toolkit
- Increase their stakeholder and buy-in for technological foods
Please note that the challenge ends this month. As the transformation of our food supply is already underway to technological foods the ideas harvested will be rapidly be implemented to ensure a compliant techno-food supply chain by the end of the year.
Prevention is the Best Cure
Do It Yourself gardening and canning is the only way you will be safe in the days to come from dangerous genetic platforms being inserted into food products. Whatever foods you love and the foods you want to grow. Gardening in this environmental climate will be challenging but it is the only way to protect you and your loved one.
Have a blessed day!
