Track & trace for dairy

In accordance with Item 6 of Minutes No. DM-P6-20pr of the Meeting of the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, D. A. Medvedev, dated 4 May 2018, the issue of integrating the Mercury system of electronic veterinary certification and the Chestny ZNAK National track & trace digital system is being discussed.

Also, in accordance with Item 5 of Minutes No. AG-P11-1pr dated 28 May 2018 of the Meeting of the Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, A. v. Gordeev, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia and the Federal Service for the Oversight of Consumer Protection and Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) are conducting work to launch a voluntary experiment for dairy products marking based on CRPT, taking into account integration and data exchange between the Chestny ZNAK track & trace system and the Federal State Information System in the veterinary sector. On 24 July 2018, a meeting was held by the project expert group and with the participation of leading industry organisations to discuss the action plan for the experiment. Businesses took an active part in all stages of the project’s discussion.

The experiment for finished dairy products marking is scheduled to begin on 1 September 2018. The draft of the respective resolution is published on the website.

CRPT is prepared to launch the pilot project from 1 September 2018 and has already been developing the marking processes and technologies together with market participants for several months. The companies Danone, Galaktika and Karat have declared their willingness to make their production facilities available for testing.

It is planned for the Chestny ZNAK track & trace system to be interfaced with the Mercury electronic veterinary certification system; the Mercury system will trace the dairy products from the farm to the plant, and Chestny ZNAK will trace them from the plant to the customer. The digital Data Matrix code will be used to mark the finished dairy products.

Working meetings are currently being held with representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia, the Federal Service for the Oversight of Consumer Protection and Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) and the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision (Rosselkhoznadzor) to work out the issues related to integration and data exchange between the Federal State Information System for the veterinary sector and the track & trace system in the Russian Federation.

Marina Balabanova

Regional Vice-President for Corporate Relations, Danone Russia and CIS

«Danone is confident that the national system of digital marking and traceability offered by CRPT holds great prospects for the dairy industry, so it has put forward an initiative to conduct a pilot project. It would make it possible to refine the technical solution for marking dairy products with control and identification marks, and assess its impact on current operating business processes, as well as optimise costs for its implementation in the sector»

Andrey Danilenko

Chairman of the Management Board, Soyuzmoloko

«The dairy business is interested in implementing the idea of traceability; however, at present, it faces technical difficulties related to integration with the electronic veterinary certification system. We would like to consider the possibility of using the marking system as an alternative to veterinary certification for finished products»
