DeltaTrak, a leading innovator of cold chain management and temperature monitoring solutions, has joined IBM Food Trust.
As per a release, the initiative will allow DeltaTrak help suppliers by selectively sharing key information of food items with their business partners using blockchain. It can also facilitate more effective collaboration where it can upload relevant information to the blockchain to comply with their customer requirements.
“DeltaTrak’s experienced professionals provide a service to assist suppliers step-by-step through the process, allowing them to identify, map and upload their information to the IBM Food trust,” the announcement stated.
IBM Food Trust is built on the Hyperledger Fabric-based open source technology, which means that even though the ledger model is decentralized, companies can control who can access the information on the blockchain.
“Participation in the IBM Food Trust should be more than just customer-driven. When suppliers come on board, they’re joining forces with other stakeholders, to improve the speed of food safety tracebacks, reduce waste, and optimize efficiency in the supply chain. Ultimately a win-win situation for all parties, down to the consumer,” Frederick Wu, DeltaTrak President and CEO, said.
Last July, leading healthy food and beverage producer ORGANO also joined the IBM Food Trust to allow stakeholders to scan, a product and interact with detailed information including quality assurance, logistics, inspection data, and supplier information.
