AgTech startup co-founder Andrew Grant has stated that South Australia’s primary industries can lead in the food traceability space, further capitalising on the state’s best practice farming and food production reputation.
South Australia is known for producing high quality food and wine for domestic and export markets. Still, end-to-end traceability delivered through blockchain technology could provide a new level of trust and integrity to align with consumers’ growing demands for authenticity on what is consumed.
Adelaide-based Andrew Grant has co-founded several AgTech startups, including smart tracking software solution, Trust Provenance. The platform integrates data points along the supply chain from paddock to plate, enabling heightened integrity across food safety, traceability, biosecurity, quality and provenance.
Trust Provenance works by capturing touchpoints along a product’s journey in real-time, integrating these onto one platform and securing the data points in the blockchain. The data is then presented in a digital format allowing producers, packers, processers, retailers, quality inspectors and consumers to know the true journey of a product.
