UN’s One Planet Network accepts blockchain startup Ambrosus as partner

Mon, 22 Oct 2018, 12:12 pm UTC

The United Nations’ One Planet Network has accepted and formally recognized Ambrosus, a blockchain and IoT platform for quality assurance in food and pharmaceutical supply chains, as its partner.

One Planet Network is a multi-stakeholder partnership for sustainable development, generating collective impact through its six programmes: Public Procurement, Buildings and Construction, Tourism, Food Systems, Consumer Information, and Lifestyles and Education.

Ambrosus is one of the first blockchain companies to join the Consumer Information Program (CI-SCP), which is comprised of more than 40 of the world’s most influential agencies — including the European Commission Directorate General for the Environment, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, and the UN-backed International Trade Centre.

CI-SCP is an important forum for promoting sustainable, quality, and eco-friendly products to the end consumer. Ambrosus said that its membership will help drive sustainability in the consumption and production of food through the use of digital ledger technology.

In line with the aims set out by the World Summit on Sustainable Development, CI-SCP provides Ambrosus with a collaborative and strategic environment to interact with various stakeholders in order to better promote sustainable practices to the end-consumer.

“Joining the Consumer Information Programme of the One Planet Network is a significant achievement for the growth and expansion of AMB-NET, Angel Versetti, Co-Founder and CEO of Ambrosus, said. “As a pioneer of blockchain and internet of things technology, Ambrosus will provide unique technological solutions for some of the most sophisticated problems surrounding food sustainability and eco-friendly packaging.”

Ambrosus partners with Blendhub and Flatev

In addition, Ambrosus announced that it has partnered with Blendhub, a decentralized food production network concentrated on powdered foods, and Flatev, a consumer-oriented snacking and baked goods company.

Blendhub will leverage Ambrosus’ sensor technology and blockchain network to track ingredients, raw materials, and end products from primary source to destination, guaranteeing proof of quality throughout the supply chain. Ambrosus said that integrating AMB-NET into a globally applicable powdered food technology guarantees industry diversity.

Ambrosus’ partnership with Flatev, will see the companies work together to redefine the quality and transparency standards behind home-baked goods.

Both Ambrosus and Flatev were recently selected by the European Institute of Technology as rising Food Stars and their combined solution enables Flatev’s capsule information to be read by radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader and immediately connect with a consumer interface (iPAD).

“Through our partnership with Flatev, consumers around the world will have access to information about the condition of their bread-making ingredients, allowing for an unprecedented level of transparency. In addition, our work with Blendhub will help to further guarantee the quality and traceability of powder-based foods,” Versetti said. “Together, these partnerships serve to increase the scope and applicability of the Ambrosus ecosystem, inaugurating a new standard of quality assurance that food supply chains from all around the world will stand to benefit from. “
