Australian livestock tracking platform Aglive completes a pilot testing tracing beef exports to China.

Aglive’s trial was launched during late-January and was conducted in partnership with:

  • Global shipping logistics company DB Schenker
  • Industry body Meat and Livestock Australia

Aglive executive director Paul Ryan emphasized that each individual products, carton and air container used across the supply chain was identified and tracked, with Internet-of-Things devices alongside the products to record temperature and location data.

All the data was then recorded to a private version of the Ethereum blockchain that could execute smart contracts on both Hyperledger Fabric and Ethereum.

The executive emphasized that Aglive is “technology-neutral” and “will work with whatever blockchain technology delivers the best outcomes for our client.”

Ryan stated that the idea for a traceability trial in partnership with Macka’s was conceived during late 2019, however, it was delayed due to COVID-19 and a slow uptake of the technologies employed:

“The adoption of new concepts and practices is never easy as the lure of business-as-usual can be strong..The slowest and hardest part of putting a project together is encouraging the various participants to dedicate sufficient time and resources to implement the changes.”

Ryan added:

“While there are often the best of intentions, what is intended to take days, often takes weeks. Similarly, what is intended to take weeks, can very quickly consume months.”

Aglive used a digital National Vendor Declaration app to integrate farm accreditation and shipping management on the same platform, allowing stakeholders to track each individual item across the supply chain using unique QR codes.

Ryan further added:

“The end goal is to reduce farm paperwork so farmers can manage farms and not forms and so they can also provide the evidence that helps them earn premium prices for the food they produce..In short, the goal is to ensure farmers can earn more money for the same work.”

The platform is currently working to introduce its product-to-plate solution to the markets of major livestock producers worldwide, including the European Union, Brazil, Canada, Argentina and Uruguay.
