“Reassurance Broiler Project” is one of the “Ten Secure Food Projects” in Tianjin, China. The platform, a third-party authentication and management platform, contains eight subsystems and a website for query and information release. It applies object-oriented system analysis and design on the basis of use cases under RUP.“.NET” framework is applied, SQL Server is used as DBMS while a mode combining C/S and B/S structure is adopted. A 25-digit unique identification is used as industry chain transmission identification, with RFID as the carrier. Besides, 10-digit one-dimensional tracing code and two-dimensional QR code are used on tracing label. The platform can trace information for processes from broiler production, inspection and quarantine, slaughtering, processing, as well as packaging and selling, which can help improve food safety, reduce management cost, increase brand advantages and help government authorities provide early warnings against animal epidemic and problems related to production quality and safety.
