Digital trading platform adds sustainability features

Consentio, a digital trading platform for fresh produce, has added sustainability data enabling buyers and sellers to initially view carbon dioxide and water consumption data when trading produce.

“This is a small start,” said Benoit Vandevivere, CEO and co-founder of Consentio. “Our aspirations are much greater. We will incrementally add more sustainability features such as details of the grower and the produce journey from farm to fork.”

The digital platform tracks fresh produce transactions from the grower through the distributors to the retailers and with 12,000 users globally, the platform tracks the transactions and offers extensive supply chain visibility to customers. The new feature will enable buyers to view carbon and water data, alongside price and availability, when selecting a supplier of produce. The sustainability data published is drawn from accredited government sources, and whilst it is possible for suppliers to update ‘their’ data, the sustainability data provided must be accredited.

“It is not just fresh produce. The world of food production and supply is changing rapidly,” said Vandevivere. “Consumers want to know more about the food they eat, where it was produced and when, what the carbon impact was during the food production and much more. Retailers are now looking for suppliers who can provide true and verifiable provenance with transparent supply chains meaning some food producers are finding it harder to gain shelf space. We want to place ourselves at the heart of this revolution, offering provable, transaction-based, transparent supply chains, accessible from all technologies.”
