Caroli turns to blockchain to track olive oil

Blockchain is being used to track Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil producer Caroli has partnered with Blocksyte to implement end-to-end blockchain traceability into its supply chain.

Blocksyte’s SaaS-based blockchain application will be used to track the journey of Caroli’s olive oil as it moves through the supply chain between Caroli’s farm in Martina Franca, Italy and the United States, to ensure its products are handled under optimal conditions.

The application will enable Caroli to monitor real-time location, temperature, humidity and light exposure.

“We are excited to use blockchain to monitor our olive oil from the production facility through customs clearance and into our warehouses,” said Caroli USA co-founder and CEO Ben D’Antico.

“This ensures that our customers can be confident that they are paying for and receiving a premium product, which has been tracked from the bottling source.”

Blocksyte’s blockchain platform also measures humidity, can detect potential tampering and track the shipment’s exact location.

“We applaud Caroli for its forward-looking approach to introducing Blocksyte’s blockchain traceability into its supply chain,” said Blocksyte co-founder and CEO Alan Pelz-Sharpe.

“We look forward to expanding our relationship with the company as it increases its shipments to a growing clientele here in the US.”  

Caroli consumers will be able to access the olive oil’s blockchain record via a code located on the label of each bottle, detailing exact dates of packaging and shipment, as well as location, providing complete ‘farm to fork’ traceability.

Growing appetite for blockchain

Caroli is one of many food producers and supermarket chains around the world that have started to explore blockchain technology to streamline their supply chain processes.

Earlier this year, Thomas Foods International and independent grocery retailer Drakes Supermarket launched a blockchain trial tracking Australian meat products from farm to plate.

The pair said blockchain had been particularly beneficial when it came to product recalls, with customers able to quickly identify product at risk, as well as being able to prove provenance or the history of an individual cut of meat.

The trial forms part of the IBM Food Trust, a blockchain consortium that seeks to bring transparency and efficiency to global supply chains, with members including Walmart, Nestle and Unilever.

By using the IBM platform, all supply chain participants can operate based on a shared view of food ecosystem data, where records are updated in real time, enabling greater transparency and efficiency between participating retailers, suppliers and growers.

North American seafood company Bumble Bee Foods is another producer who has used blockchain to trace the journey of its products, tracking yellowfish tuna from sea to dinner table.

    We find it to be a thing that really has no relevance to the current topic at hand. It can be entertaining to permit these kinds of things to happen alas it happens anyway even when you dont want it to but thats just the way

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It?s the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks??

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100 certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
