California Giant Berry Farms joins IBM Food Trust

The US berry producer, California Giant Berry Farms, joined the blockchain-based food tracking solution, IBM Food Trust.

The fruit and vegetable news channel, The Packer, reported May 17 that California Giant will use a blockchain to share data between all points in its supply chain. The company is using the integration of Glassbit’s Glasschain as a service solution.

According to California Giant’s chief operating officer, Thomas Taggart, integration with IBM’s blockchain network will enable the company and its partners to find ways to improve the efficiency of product transportation. Walmart’s senior director of global food safety, Texas Bhatt, also praised the integration:

„This allows us to track food from the farm to the store and helps ensure it’s fresh and safe when our customers buy it.“

Blockchain sees growing use in food tracking
Supply chain tracking is one of the most active areas of application for blockchain technology, presumably because its immutability is particularly valuable in such applications. The food industry seems to be particularly interested in such developments because of the great pressure to make products in this category safe for consumption when they reach the shelves.

As Cointelegraph reported in late April, the world’s largest producer of fruits and vegetables, Dole Food Company, released a five-year plan to expand its adoption of distributed record book technology.
