Swiss worldwide leader in Food Industry, extends activities in technology blockchain IBM Food Trust.
“For the first time, Nestlé partnered with a third party certifier, The Rainforest Alliance, to independently provide data beyond what is usually disclosed by the company. The Rainforest Alliance provides their own certification information, guaranteeing the traceability of the coffee. This information is directly accessible to everyone with the IBM Food Trust blockchain platform,” said Nestlé.
From now every consumer can scan the QR code on the packaging of their favorite coffee and follow the path of their coffee beans from the growing places until to the Swedish Zoégas factory.
In this way, you will get data on farmers, harvest time, transaction certificates for the particular shipment and the final period of coffee roasting and baking.
Nestlé began and use blockchain technology as 2017 when it was one of the first members of IBM Food Trust. During this period, the company expanded its activities related to the use of the platform running on blockchaine.
So far, the company has enabled access to scan and follow up the supply chain for Mousline purée, Guigoz infant formula and from today also favorite coffee from Zoégas.
