Blockchain technology applied to the food sector makes it possible to trace food through the manufacturing process, from seed to packaging. All supply chain stages can be viewed by the consumer by reading the QR code printed on the label. Through cards filled in at each step and made unaltered by the system, product information becomes a blockchain capable of ensuring transparency, safety, reliability and sustainability. Thanks to the Quadrans blockchain, Foodchain SpA (i.e. Joint-Stock Company) aims to make transparency an essential asset for every stakeholder in the food supply chain to guarantee the origin, quality and value of food for the benefit of producers and to protect consumers.
