Florida-based seed-to-sale traceability company Metrc signed a contract to provide track-and-trace services to Minnesota’s medical cannabis program.

The deal marks Metrc’s 19th government contract, the company said in a Thursday news release.

Metrc uses a radio-frequency identification tag model in which operators must tag plants and products that are then traceable through the RFID tag.

According to Metrc, the company’s inventory-management system is important to maintain regulatory compliance, accurate reporting of sales data and consumer and product safety.
