The ability to trace and track food producing animals and their products from production and distribution is considered as an indispensable instrument to improve consumer confidence. In the Philippines, traceability on food production and manufacturing is covered under Republic Act 10611 or the Philippine Food Safety Law of 2013. Thus, the present initiative was implemented to develop a model on animal and product traceability using goat as commodity. The goal of system development is to transform and innovate traditional monitoring of goat farms and recording of animal performance and introduce a traceability system for chevon. The traceability model utilized existing technologies on SMS-based for data transmission and QR code for product traceability. A central processing unit was established and served as depository of production performance. Using mobile data transmission, the real time production status of the farm can be monitored, thus, appropriate interventions can be sent to the farm via feedback mechanism embedded in the system. Likewise, using the stored data, estimates on volume of meat can be forecasted which is then used as input in product processing. Movement of products in the market can also be evaluated, which can be used as basis in determining consumers’ product preference. Overall, the developed system can lead to improvement of goat production management while food safety is also addressed. It can also be a useful tool to continuously provide technical assistance to the raisers amid the community restrictions due to the current pandemic.
