All organizations evolve over time. Whether it is a family business, a Fortune 500 company, or a startup, organizations change with the passage of time. The Beef InfoXchange System (BIXS) is no different.
Traceability is still important, and everyone feels differently about where it exactly fits into long term profitability.
According to the BIXS website:
We are not quite there yet, but through BIXS, an unprecedented number of industry leaders are working together to make industry-wide tracking a reality. Working with different parts of the value chain as a value-added provider, BIXS is becoming the backbone of Canada’s cattle and beef industry, building a system that unlocks data for everyone – from producers, to processors to retailers. Building trust in the entire supply chain – which is vital here at home and to the rest of the world.
RealAgriculture’s Shaun Haney had an opportunity to talk to Deborah Wilson, with BIXS, about the future of the company and how traceability fits into the future profitability of producers and the entire value chain.
