Ethereum & Vechain showcase how blockchain technology enhances food supply chain traceability in the billion-$- industry – Details

  • Ethereum and VeChain are two key blockchain technology making waves in the supply chain ecosystem.
  • Greek researchers specifically highlighted how Ethereum can help local Olive farmers.

The discussions on the importance of blockchain technology are gaining momentum and two of the most versatile Layer-1 protocols, Ethereum (ETH) and VeChain are gaining momentum in related conversations globally. 

According to a research paper published by the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), Greek researchers led by Evripidis K. Kechagias, the ways in which Ethereum can be used to advance traceability in the Food supply chain ecosystem were highlighted.

According to the researchers, there are a number of complicated processes involved in the supply chain ecosystem that is often overwhelming and cause a lag. One of the major challenges is the issue of traceability which can cause a lot of regulatory problems for producers and distributors.

While the issue of traceability is an ancient one, blockchain technology appears to be a viable solution that can change things around. The research paper thus presents a framework that showcases how Greek Olives producers can utilize the Ethereum protocol to optimize their current approach to Traceability in their supply chain practices.

“The paper also presents a methodological framework, which can help anyone aiming to implement an Ethereum decentralized application and demonstrates the practical use of the developed application by a Greek table olives producer. The application significantly improved the producer’s product traceability by providing a secure, transparent, and efficient solution for tracking and tracing the products in the supply chain,” an excerpt from the paper’s Abstract reads.

Ethereum is considered one of the most robust smart contract protocols and arguably the largest in terms of its Total Value Locked (TVL) which is now pegged at $27.9 billion according to data from DeFiLlama. With its growing relevance, Ethereum is now considered a flexible fit by the Greek scientist for their Traceability in Supply Chain innovation.

The VeChain mention

While the role of Ethereum as the biggest smart contract protocol in the crypto ecosystem is acknowledged, the role of other Layer-1 protocols like VeChain in key technological innovations cannot also be shoved aside.

In recognizing the role of VeChain in the supply chain world, the Greek researchers also mentioned VeChain with regard to its usage by the China Animal Health and Food Safety Alliance (CAFA). The research team highlighted the role of VeChain to “improve food safety and quality control while providing transparent information to consumers by providing a food traceability certification system for CAFA members, enabling them to track the entire life cycle of food products, from production to distribution and sale.”

Since its inception, VeChain has played a very definitive role in innovations that are best suited for enterprise adoption. Build as a very scalable, fast, and flexible protocol, VeChain has joined the fight against Climate Change and sustainability management, a role that has earned it wide acclaim even among its crypto peers.

In all, it has been proven that blockchain protocols can help rebrand the multi-billion dollar supply chain industry.
