Consumers have become increasingly curious and demand on the source of the products they buy.
Transparency on the origin of agricultural products, their sanitary conditions as well as the chemicals used during the agricultural life cycle and the transport conditions represent today an indispensable and more than requested information on the world consumer market.
The use of smart contracts offers an effective solution and a proof of tangible transparency on the origin of agricultural and livestock products throughout the supply chain, several information can be accessible on the product.
Blockchain and smart contracts can rebuild the bridge of trust between the farmer and all actors in the supply chain and the end consumer.
Let’s take the example of a frozen chicken sold at the supermarket, through a QR code on the packaging of the chicken, the consumer can scan it with his smartphone and have access in a few seconds to all the information related to this product such as:
His date of birth, the location of the farm, the number of vaccines, the amount of antibiotic administered, the type of food, the evolution of his weight, the number of days of breeding, his state of health, the conditions of slaughter, freezing and storage conditions, the date of slaughter, the date of sale in the supermarket, etc.
