Emergency situations such as biosecurity incursions, food safety breaches and natural disasters require rapid responses to identify the source of threat and to secure the supply chain.
But it can time to collate the necessary information, and regulators don’t always have data at their fingertips about which properties produce which products and where food is in the supply chain.
This $90,000, one-year project used GS1 data standards and the new GS1 Digital Link QR code to create a digital map of properties and products in the NSW cherry and potato industries. The data is managed via FreshChain’s fully integrated, blockchain enabled, paddock to plate assurance system.
Test cases demonstrated that products can be tracked and traced quickly in the supply chain and that GS1 data standards can used to determine chain of custody and to deliver consumer insights.
