Identifying products to consume by lot number in manufacturing order

I would like the ability to identify my products to be consumed (ingredients) by entering the lot number rather than a specific product.

Because we are in the food business, we need to trace all of our products through manufacturing, and to do so we 9 times out of 10 reference a lot number.

My thought is to use a barcode printed on a pallet of product with the related lot # of the pallet (for us each pallet is a lot). The operator would pick the pallet and once scan the lot barcode, which would auto magically select the product as and identify the related product.

I know there are a few mobile apps out there, not sure if they do anything like this.

Any and all feedback is welcome.
