Apeda’s Blockchain solution will help importers from the EU track all details of grape consignments from India. The Indian Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (Apeda), has integrated a Blockchain solution into its GrapeNet traceability platform. It has been implemented as a hybrid solution combining its traditional web-based SaaS (Software as a Service) model for its stakeholders. It is also augmented by a permissioned, private Blockchain layer for further data security and authentication.
The GrapeNet is a web based certification and traceability software system, designed to monitor exports of fresh grapes from India to the EU. The Blockchain solution, called Apeda Trust Chain, will help track all the details of the consignment, right down to the location of the vineyards. It will keep a record of all the processes involved which can be traced by international customers at the end of the chain to validate the authenticity and quality of the grapes.
