Why to use blockchain for food traceability

How blockchain is used for supply chains

When companies present food products to their consumers, they make several statements about the product: it’s organic, non-GMO, originates from a certain country, was processed in compliance with HACCP guidelines, etc.

Due to several reasons, the trust in many consumers have been fading during the recent years. So companies act to provide the proofs, that the statements they make about their products are true.

Farm-to-table traceability enables supply chain companies to submit their event data to TE-FOOD, registrate them on blockchain, while connecting the IDs to keep the data integrity.

The blockchain ledger contains the proof of the information entered by the different supply chain participants. The transparent, unmodifiable, and incorruptible approach of blockchain technology ensures consumers that the data can’t be falsified by a food company.
