Bureau Veritas Launches Origin, the World’s First Blockchain-Based Complete Food Traceability Solution

Jaa

Bureau Veritas launches Origin, the world’s first traceability label to give consumers a complete end-to-end proof of a product’s journey, from farm to fork. This solution will be presented to an international audience on March 5th 2018 in Tokyo, at this year’s Global Food Safety Conference.

Origin, built on blockchain technology, offers a smart and practical way for consumers to access information on each stage of a product’s journey. Shoppers flash a QR code in-store to see the full history of each product, and make informed purchase decisions.

Food industry players throughout the value chain also benefit from this cost-effective solution. Brands and retailers are able to better control supply chains, through better visibility as well as real time management of product recalls.

Projects are underway with a number of Bureau Veritas clients, and the technology is now ready to be launched to the wider market.

Vincent Bourdil, Vice-President Food at Bureau Veritas said:

“The launch of Origin follows two years of work by Bureau Veritas to develop blockchain applications that increase confidence in transactions. Origin is a win-win solution not just for consumers, but also for retailers, suppliers, processors and manufacturers, as it adds value to the final product. With Origin, product recalls can be managed in real time, enabling the brand to preserve its reputation.”

The use of blockchain makes Origin technologically innovative and resolves key challenges that have made full food traceability elusive until now. Built in partnership with Worldline, a leader in securing digital transactions, it is first solution of its kind to leverage the technology.

Olivier Stuckens, Managing Director Mobility & e-Transactional Services at Worldline said:

“Blockchain offers unique advantages for a product such as Origin: it is secure, open, transparent, and does not require a controlling entity. Using blockchain technology revolutionizes how transactions are verified, thereby increasing reliability of information. This feature means that while Origin has been developed with the food industry in mind, it can be used for any sector.”

Food verification schemes have traditionally relied on third party inspections and sampling at each stage of the food production process. By contrast, a blockchain-based solution enables continual and complete verification, by demanding that all the players share records and validate transactions each time they occur. At the same time, sensitive data remains confidential, with each party awarded different levels of access to information.

Greene Tweed Receives Patent for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomers and Molded Articles24.10.2018 00:00Tiedote

The U.S. Patent Office has awarded Greene Tweed Patent Number 10,011,690 for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomer Compositions and Molded Articles. The innovative elastomer technology was developed by a team that included inventor Ron Campbell, PhD, Principal Scientist and Technology Leader for Elastomers in Greene Tweed’s Advanced Technology Group, to provide a competitive advantage in the Energy market and expand technology protected under a previous patent. Rapid gas decompression (RGD) often occurs when high-pressure gas molecules migrate into an elastomer at a compressed state. When the pressure surrounding the elastomer is suddenly released, the compressed gas inside the elastomer tries to expand and exit the elastomer, thus causing RGD (also known as explosive decompression). Most elastomers experience severe blistering or cracking when the force of these expanding gases overcome the strength of the surrounding material; however, materials engineered to withstand RG

Morinaga Milk Study Suggests Infant-Type Human-Residential Bifidobacteria May Benefit Infant Health by Improving Digestion of Peptides in Milk and Grains23.10.2018 21:00Tiedote

Scientists at Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264) have long theorized that Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (HRB) are superior to non-Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (non-HRB) in promoting good health outcomes. The results of a new study strengthen the evidence for this theory, showing that infant-type HRB may be able to break down incompletely digested peptides in the infants’ gastrointestinal systems and thus contribute to their overall health.

myPOS Founder Christo Georgiev Announces Two Upcoming myPOS Stores in Barcelona and Paris23.10.2018 19:22Tiedote

Christo Georgiev, fintech entrepreneur and founder of myPOS, has confirmed his intention to open two new flagship stores in major European cities by the end of the year. The opening is part of an initiative to bring the product closer to potential customers, giving them a hands-on experience and a live demonstration of what myPOS has to offer. The two new stores will be opened in Barcelona, Spain and Paris, France – two of the most important markets for myPOS. “Our Spanish and French customers have always placed a tremendous amount of trust in us, and we in turn have worked hard to justify it,” Georgiev says. “Opening physical locations in Barcelona and Paris is an extension of that relationship. It’s important to test a product with your own hands before you choose to trust it, and if that’s true for TVs and phones why can’t it apply to POS terminals?” The Barcelona store will open as soon as November, followed shortly by the Paris one before the end of the year. myPOS has already ope
