Food for Thought

Maine may be leading the way in making the public notice some aspects of food chain data that previously was hard to follow — animagesd this  “boat to plate” project is about to make waves.  A $175,000 federal government grant award will help the Gulf of Maine Research Institute in Portland develop a tool that tracks fish caught along the coast as it is sold and moved to supermarkets and restaurants where customers can scan barcodes to learn who caught the product, where and when.

According to a May 2015 Associate Press article this is the latest in food traceability that helps customers know the origins of food as it moves through world markets.
