Don Durm, with his extensive experience in the field, shared invaluable knowledge on how to navigate this terrain effectively and follow the FSMA 204 rule.


"The USDA tells us that 40% of our food is wasted. What's really different about what we're doing now is we can use the 50 year old technology of the barcode, but we can also use newer technologies that don't allow a line of sight. So as it passes through a portal, I can pick all that data up then give information back to the user," commented Don Durm about PLM TrustLinkTM .This allows for real time visibility into the products on a case by case level. 


One of the central topics of discussion was the new FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) 204 Rule.
