AgriOpenData - Blockchain Integrated App
Nowdays in the food market, certifying the agricultural product's origin and quality seems to be a big issue for consumers, farms and for the large scale retailing, a problem that weighs on the farmers' business and on the authenticity of agricultural products. The AgriOpenData Blockchain integrated system is an innovative digital technology that guarantees, in a transparently, secure and public manner, the traceability of the whole agri-food chain as well as the processing of agricultural products, specially BIO and DOCG products, allowing to certify the quality and their digital identities: provenance, ownership, seeding, treatments, crop, IoT analysis, processing, storage and delivery. This digital history assures the authenticity of organic products to the final consumer and enhances the quality of the agro-food business.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Blockchain technology is a secure and distributed registry for unchangeable open data transfer, with no centralized control. It is basically a database that contains a public ledger of all transactions carried out among users since its creation. The database is shared among all users, without intermediaries, so each participant can check the validity of the transaction chain. Made famous by the digital currency Bitcoin, the Blockchain technology certifies the value between the parties, and by which it is possible to replace the guarantee of a third party centralized as that offered by the central banks.
AgriOpenData applies the Blockchain system to the agri-food sector through a security code (available via QR Code reader) that records and tracks step by step the history of each agricultural product (vegetables, fruits, legumes, cereals and more), from the seeding in the fields to the transformation in farms, up to storing the product in stores, in order to guarantee consumers a certified quality product.
A CERTIFIED PRODUCT AND A HEALTHY MARKET
Thanks to the Blockchain technology, by a real-time tracking of all the information collected on the digital history of the product, AgriOpenData guarantees the certification of organic and healthy products to its stakeholders in the agricultural sector as well as in the agri-food market (agronomists, consortia, farms, consumers), in spite of the false BIO and other imitations increasingly common in agri-food production.
At any time and in any store, the final customer will be able to reach in total transparency the origins, the properties and the entire agri-food chain of the selected product through its own smartphone (via QR Code reader), consulting all the real information gathered on the timeline along the production.
The AgriOpenData blockchain aims to be a transparent certification solution of authentic agricultural products, which reinforces the relationship of trust between the consumer and the entire food production chain, enhancing high quality farmers and producer to guarantee food security for every citizen.
