Ethical traceability in the bacon supply chain

Thorkild Nielsen, Niels Heine Kristensen

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


    The chapter describes how Danish consumers feel a need for more information about bacon production practices,especially about some of the invisible attributes, such as origin, use of medicine and animal welfare, even though there is a long tradition for highly developed traceability systems. Traceability is reactive in this chain and is not intended to transmit information on the safety, production practices or quality of the final product proactively downstream to firms or end consumers.
