Food giant Nestlé has started to use IBM Food Trust blockchain technology on another of its products.
Nestlé, which has been applying this tech to other products for quite some time, has now decided to bring it into the coffee supply chain in order to track this product from the moment it is harvested.
According to the announcement the company made yesterday, the use of cryptos' underlying technology in its Zoégas coffee brand will allow users to track the product from its various origins in Brazil, Rwanda and Colombia.
In addition, consumers will be able to access certain information by scanning QR codes, including the time and place of harvesting, the roasting period, the transaction certificate for specific shipments, farmers, etc.
The integration of IBM's blockchain technology into its coffee brand has been made possible thanks to Rainforest Alliance, a non-governmental organization focused on sustainable forestry and agriculture. It will provide reliable data that will allow users to track coffee from the moment it is harvested till it arrives to the Zoégas factory in Helsingborg, Sweden.
IBM launched its Food Trust in back October 2018 with the aim of strengthening food security with the help of blockchain.
