A press release confirmed that a Swiss food manufacturer has become the first in Europe to use the ethereum blockchain to track fish products.
Gustav Gerig AG has been around since 1923 and they have collaborated with global tuna marketing company pacifical c.v to enable customers to certify the origin if its tune range utilizing blockchain technology.
Tins in the range will have a QR code that users can scan in order to know information like as the manufacturing date, the range of tuna, and also how it was caught.
The blockchain implementation is being offered by Thailand-based atato, a blockchain service provider building enterprise-geared decentralized apps in collaboration with Joseph Lubin’s startup ConsenSys.
The press release explained that “In providing an optimal level of transparency the company will enable all its clients to access to data on exactly how the Pacifical MSC tuna was sustainably caught through the following information: which captain, vessel, catch timing, method, and area, where and when it was processed.”
Food supply chains and provenance have also turned to blockchain to expand fairness and security with transparency.
Initiatives have concentrated on industries starting from chicken to rice recently.
Pacifical began partnering with Atato in August in order to bring blockchain’s benefits to tuna distribution.
