Going with the times with the company Nestlé has been using technology for some time blockchain in its operations, thus ensuring greater transparency in the supply chain. Now expanded the use of block chains by luxury brand Zoégas coffeeand the provider of the modern solution is IBM Food Trust.
Zoégas "Summer 2020" coffee edition on blockchain
Nestlé begins to use more and more blockchain technology. Currently intends to use it in the distribution of Zoégas coffee. It will be a limited edition called "Summer 2020" which has been introduced to the Swedish market.
Zoégas is a brand of whole-grain arabica ground coffee, certified by Rainforest Alliance, coming from three countries - Brazil, Rwanda and Colombia.
Data recorded using block chains will be used to track the entire process of making their favorite coffee.
Cooperation with Rainforest Alliance
Collaboration established by Nestlé with Rainforest Alliance is focused on obtaining fully reliable data, and at the same time more accurate data than those normally made public by the company.
Rainforest Alliance provides its own certification information to identify coffee. They are available via the IBM Food Trust blockchain platform.
How it works?
Customers have been able to track coffee, which is available by scanning the QR code on the packaging.
So they can track the entire product development process starting at the Helsingborg factory where the beans are roasted and then packaged. Consumers gain consideration of farmers' data, harvest time, certificates awarded, and during the period of firing beans.
Nestlé and blockchain
Nestlé turned to blockchain technology in 2017, becoming a member of the IBM Food Trust blockchain ecosystem.
Since then, the company has been actively involved in the development of blockchain platforms, thus ensuring its clients the greatest possible transparency.
The first products that used blockchain technology was puree Muslin and a baby formula Guigoz.
At the same time, together with OpenSC, the company is also piloting an open blockchain network focused on tracking and exchanging data on milk and palm oil durability.
