1. INTRODUCTION  Food traceability has over the last decade become a well-understood topic, both in research and in practice. In Europe food chain traceability was given a special emphasis in Pri-ority 5 of the sixth framework programme (2002-2006) re-sulting in over 14 different research projects, and a total re-search budget of over 140 Million ₃ over four years, and involving up to 400 different participants across 30 coun-tries. These projects include Food Trace [1], which set the ground work for electronic traceability, TRACE IP [2], which worked on origin determination and traceability, CHILL-ON [3] which used traceability for communication in the cold chain and finally Bright Animal [4, 5] which identified new ways of optimisation in the feed-animal-food chain. A good guide to global efforts on larger scale traceability is given in the book “Food traceability around the world” [6]. In many areas, food traceability has become a main stream activity. Large software providers such as IBM and SAP offer food traceability solutions as do specialised pro-viders, such as FoodReg. In the particular case of meat production and related fields, such as animal husbandry and precision livestock farming, a number of efforts have been undertaken (see [7-10] and references therein) to use traceability in

  • Animal tracking
  • Feed optimisation
  • Managing slaughter
  • Managing the butchering process
  • Origin determination
