It’s been almost 13 years since the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law. It gave the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) a stronger presence in food safety and regulation. It also set up new rules and regulations for food facilities and other key stakeholders such as restaurants, distributors, and retail food establishments (RFEs). One rule in particular that establishes a stricter traceability system is FSMA 204, which goes into effect in January of 2026.

True end-to-end traceability for food products is established by FSMA 204. The emphasis is on using digital recordkeeping and tech-enabled traceability systems to achieve this goal. ProCat’s foodservice solutions and resources can give food facilities the confidence they need to game plan for FSMA 204 before the calendar year changes to 2026.
