Food Traceability Using Blockchain Technology

The food supply chain stuff is tricky. Do you want to make it easy?

Typical consumers have no idea where their food originates or how it ends up on shop shelves. Many food product labels list the item’s country or state of origin. However, this information provides virtually zero insight into how the food was grown, what pathway it took to the grocery store, or if it was produced using sustainable practices.

Each day, an increasingly large percentage of consumers desire to know more about where their food comes from and how it got into their grocery carts. This cultural shift among consumers has led many food manufacturers and distributors to invest in food traceability solutions that leverage blockchain technology.

While a traceability system certainly offers advantages to the business, it also provides many consumer benefits. When consumers realize these benefits, the demand for blockchain technology integration into the food-based consumer goods space will skyrocket.

According to the FDA, food traceability refers to the ability to follow food movement throughout every supply chain link. Blockchain technology provides the perfect framework for recording this roadmap because the records are immutable. This immutability means they cannot be altered or changed, assuring consumer confidence in associated data.

Blockchain food traceability systems allow the food and Beverage industry to optimize its product distribution efficiency. This setup means that consumers will consistently access fresher fruits, vegetables, and other perishable items.

Traceability systems offer tremendous benefits to consumers. However, these systems would not be viable without blockchain technology and the support of traceability innovators like Farm to Plate.

BLOCKCHAIN: How to reduce costs and protect the business?

Incorporating Blockchain into food supply chains has been gaining much traction recently. Blockchain can facilitate accurate food tracing, which offers many benefits to every link in the food supply chain. It can improve food safety, waste, and supplier costs.

Farm to Plate’s innovative technology can reduce supplier costs by facilitating seamless Blockchain-based food tracing. While this technology is particularly beneficial to suppliers, it can help any member of the food supply chain reduce costs, including retailers, farmers, and distributors.
