Bofrost Italia is a food products company who wants to use a blockchain solution for tracing its products in the supply chain.
The company has made a partnership with a multinational professional services firm called Ernst & Young (EY) for the solution. The solution is an EY OpsChain platform-based solution.
An EY OpsChain platform is made up of a set of tools and methods. Enterprise solutions can be designed and deployed either on a private blockchain or a public blockchain through the platform.
An EY blockchain team developed a public blockchain for the company. A standard ERC (Ethereum Request-for-Comment)-721 token used by the blockchain for providing a token model. Collecting supply chain data is a purpose behind the token model.
An EY OpsChain traceability application will be used for this tracing. The application and the ERC-721 token enable Bofrost Italia for the verification of data. Supply chain controls can be improved.
Customers can scan a QR code of the ordered product using their smartphone. The code of the product can be entered manually. They will be directed into a web page of the food products company Bofrost Italia. Details of the product will be displayed on the web page. The origin of the product and the multiple stages of the supply chain through which the product passed will be included.
The Managing Director at Bofrost Italia Gianluca Tesolin said, “We started with fish and vegetables because they represent two fundamental categories for Bofrost Italia and they’re two of our most popular products in our ‘natural’ selections. The QR code is an easy and engaging way to offer Bofrost Italia customers a unique experience when purchasing these products,” PR Newswire reported.
The food products company Bofrost Italia is recognized as a leading global company. It is headquartered in San Vito al Tagliamento, Friuli-Venezia Giulia. It was founded in the year 1987, according to the official LinkedIn account of bofrost* Italia S.p.a.
