With the available technology, consumers have an increased access to information and various means for sharing their experiences instantly and publicly, for which brand owners are expected to be honest and transparent with their operations.
With consumers becoming more informed, they have the urge to know more, get more, and engage more with the brand owners to ensure quality, safety and authenticity of the products they have bought or even those they are just about to purchase. People request for transparency, demand to understand every detail and desire to have access to the brands and be able to connect in order to create trust.
Brand Owners are faced with challenges whereby they are expected to be able to protect their products, be in compliant with trade regulations and address consumer needs. Responding to these challenges requires having access to information—real time and at all time -- with regard to their products and end customers. A track and trace system that is built on global and industry standards will provide everyone in the entire supply chain a safe and trusted trading environment. Traceability of products as they move through the supply chain gives protection for brand owners and consumers alike. And this is a key step in winning the consumers' trust-- which is one; if not the biggest challenge Brand Owners face today.
