*The Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), in its 2009 Traceability (Product Tracing) in Food Systems Technical Report, defined Critical Tracking Events (CTEs) as “those events that must be recorded in order to allow for effective traceability of products in the supply chain;” these are “those instances where product is moved between premises, is transformed, or is otherwise determined to be a point where data capture is necessary to trace a product.” In its report, IFT also identified and recommended Key Data Elements (KDEs), which can be linked to CTEs and used to support product tracing.
