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.
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»
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»
