Pilot activity: A network information system to support preventive animal health and to improve pork chain management
By Maren Bruns
This pilot chain is mainly focusing on the organisational optimisation of B2B (business to business) activities to improve pork chain management.
The challenge is to implement a centralised information system in the holding Group Glon for improving the exchange and use of quality, animal health and business relevant information in the pork production chain. The network information called Sanibase.
Sanibase is an inter-enterprise / chain information system, which has been set up to support health management in the pork chain. The starting point behind Sanibase was to improve synergies between different operators in the pork chain regarding preventive animal health. Sanibase integrates all data relevant for analysing a particular health situation on a farm and makes them available for different users. By sharing information, transparency if desirable and also confidentiality if necessary, can be assured. The system can be used for other purposes with respect to different aspects of pork chain management.
