Xuzhou Kiwi Orchard—a leading Chinese producer of Xuxiang kiwi, has partnered with decentralized enterprise-grade blockchain protocol IOST in a deal that will see the farm use the IOST blockchain to build a supply chain traceability solution.
Already supplying its products to Chinese supermarkets, the solution will trace the farm’s products from planting, processing, transportation to sale. IOST said this adds another “real-life use case to its rich application profile in multiple sectors and areas” as per a Medium post on Aug 3.
Xuzhou Kiwi Orchard Join Hands with IOST
Across the globe, there have been few incidents and problems around food safety that have garnered public attention subsequently damaging public confidence. People simply want to know the source of their food and whether best practices are employed.
Chinese farms and industries—like in the rest of the world, are in the early stages of implementing food traceability systems as part of the expanding continuum to reduce risks around food safety problems.
The decision the Xuzhou Kiwi Orchard took to utilize blockchain is therefore a step in the right direction. More importantly, it highlights the possibility of the largely unexploited potential of IOST’s enterprise-grade, high throughput platform.
Integrating blockchain in any food traceability system strengthens the quality and safety supervision of agricultural products.
