Cargill pioneers Canadian beef traceability pilot project

By the end of 2018, Cargill’s Canadian Beef Sustainability Acceleration pilot program will provide customers with beef from operations that have been audited from “birth to burger” implementing an industry-developed sustainability standard. This plan will incorporate new technologies, using only Canadian cattle at Cargill’s facility in High River, Alberta. The technology used includes RFID tag systems, and cattle will be tracked by the Beef Info-Exchange System (BIXS) from the time cattle producers tag them until processing. This program is built on knowledge learned from McDonald’s beef sustainability effort, completed in 2016.
