In 2018 the team successfully concluded a project focused on the development of the Agrifood IntelliSTEM solution within KATANA project (selected in Top-10 solutions supported with €100K grant; €50K ware granted in a crowdfunding campaign in 2017 too).
FOOD SAFETY BC solution ensures automated QA validation of key processes within Agrifood supply-chain, from food production, through logistics (Transport, Warehousing, Retails) up to the End-Customer.
Using Blockchains and tamper-proof IoT-sensors, the solution validates relevant production and logistic processes by the acquisition of environment parameters (in a certain processing room, cooling equipment or transport vehicle). Then it checks if measured parameters are in compliance with food safety regulation, store the report in Distributed-Ledger as immutable data add makes it available to authorized Blockchain members including the End Customer.
The solution helps to build mutual trust among all stakeholders within the Agrifood supply-chain.
The Block.IS project encouraged me to start exploring new business opportunities based on new innovative solutions based on Blockchain. Primarily, my focus is on the Agrifood supply-chain, particularly the Food Safety segment. Based on the long term experience in this segment, a few years ago our team has developed an ERP product with a focus on food processing and Quality Assurance management.
Having in mind the complaints from our clients, I realized that, instead of the current Quality Assurance practice based on untrusted data taken from the log-books, we have to implement a completely different QA approach based on reliable real-time data validation against the established food safety regulation.
My intention is to extend our current solution with a new feature set based on Blockchain that will ensure objective QA procedures and practices within the overall Agrifood supply chain. I believe that Block.IS project could help us to accomplish the idea.
