Pilot project for the implementation of a Safety and Traceability System of fresh horticultural products at fairs

This project was cofinanced by FIA and executed by the ASOF (National Association of Fair Organizations), with the participation of Fundación Chile for the elaboration of protocols and technical safety material. The project will design and implement a Safety and Traceability System for lettuces and carrots produced by INDAP farmers in the Metropolitan Region, which will be sold in selected fairs.

These vegetables will be produced, packaged and commercialized in controlled sanitary conditions. These processes will be registered and documented in an on-line information system, which will be consulted by the consumer (customer of the fair). This initiative seeks to achieve that the Chilean population consume adequate high-quality agrifood products and that the small-scale agriculture carried out practices according to the national and international market demands.
