Nestlé and Carrefour are working on a pilot that will apply blockchain technology to the Mousline instant mashed potato product, available in Carrefour stores around France.
This is the result of the companies joining the IBM Food Trust platform. Using a QR code on the product’s packaging, shoppers will be able to access information on the production supply chain, including the varieties of potato used, information on quality control, and places and dates of storage prior to reaching the store.
“This pilot is the result of a successful partnership with Carrefour and a great step forward on our blockchain journey. We are using this technology to bring more transparency to our products by providing accurate, trusted and impartial information. That will benefit the whole value chain, including retailers and consumers,” says Vineet Khanna, SVP - Global Head Supply Chain at Nestlé.
