California Giant Berry Farms, the US-based berry producer, has joined the blockchain-based food tracking solution IBM Food Trust.
On May 17, it has been reported by The Packer, the fruit and vegetable news outlet, that California Giant will use a blockchain to share data between all the points of its supply chain, as the firm employs Glassbit’s Glasschain IBM Food Trust integration compliance as a service solution.
However, Thomas Taggart, California Giant’s Senior Director of Operations, said that the integration with IBM’s blockchain network will allow the firm and its partners to find ways to improve the efficiency of product transportation.
Tejas Bhatt, the Senior Director of Global Food Safety at Walmart, said:
“This enables us to track food from farm to store and helps ensure it is fresh and safe when our customers buy it.”
Likewise, Owler, the company data website, said that California Giant has an estimated annual revenue of $62.6 million and employs 103 people.
Thus, the food industry seems interested in such developments because of the high-pressure on ensuring that products falling in the category are safe for consumption when they reach the shelves.
