Cargill Extends Blockchain Benefits to China
Consumers can ensure food safety, track source of products back to farm
To ensure global traceability of its products utilizing blockchain technology, Cargill is launching three new chicken products to customers in China, reports Meat+Poultry.
In partnership with the China Animal Health and Food Safety Alliance (CAFA), the company’s Sun Valley Raised Without Antibiotics (RWA) offerings include two fresh, whole-chicken options as well as packaged cut-up chicken parts.
Consumers can ensure the food safety and track the source of the products back to the farm by using CAFA’s platform, which utilizes an on-package QR code.
According to Cargill, the scanned QR code reveals information about the product from the hatchery to production and includes environmental and testing data as well as cooking instructions.
