We develop and implement end-to-end traceability systems based on blockchain as this solution guarantees the integrity, transparency and security of information exchanged between different participants in a transaction. Our traceability model – TCB-Network – is currently available through the global platform, which aims at the traceability of superior quality coffee all the way from the harvest to the final consumer: plantation, harvest, transformations, and related processes as well as logistics. Now TCB-Network is evolving into a traceability platform for the entire agro-industry and we are currently in a testing stage for extra virgin olive oil.

Block.IS Experience

Block.IS has been a great experience for Smart Variable as it gave us the opportunity to interact with other actors in the Blockchain field. The EU funding has helped us to take significant steps towards the extension of our traceability platform for the agro-industry. Feedback has been very beneficial and overall it was very inspiring to see how vibrant the European Blockchain community is.
