Albertsons to work with IBM Food Trust for greater provenance through blockchain

Albertsons to work with IBM Food Trust for greater provenance through blockchain
Grocery giant Albertsons has announced that it will be
working with IBM Food Trust in a modular solution built on blockchain
technologies.



Both firms will begin piloting the technology to
enhance how food is getting traced from farm to a store, the companies
announced. Albertsons will be piloting Food Trust in order to trace bulk romaine
lettuce from one of its distribution centres in the US.



The company plans to subsequently explore expanding to
other food categories throughout its distribution network. The companies argue building
a clear, as well as secure, information-sharing platform will have a positive impact
on the food ecosystem which will also improve the efficiency and reduce
barriers to important information access. This will result in making the food
supply chain safer.



Jerry Noland, VP of food safety and quality assurance
at Albertsons Companies, said: “Multiple high-profile consumer advisories from
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug
Administration demonstrate the need to find more efficient ways of tracing products
and identifying likely sources of contamination in a timely manner.



“Consequently, retailers are exploring new
technologies to improve the infrastructure that underpins the global food
supply chain.”



As originally reported by CNBC, Microsoft had in January secured a three-year deal to make Azure Albertsons’ preferred public cloud. The report also added that the retailer, who owns the Safeway and Vons supermarket chains, will deploy the Microsoft 365 suite to employees as well as explore projects involving. Jean Atelsek, digital economics unit analyst at 451 Research, told CloudTech at the time : “Ultimately, while Albertsons’ move to Microsoft reinforces a trend, it’s a more general one around IT. No doubt the challenge from Amazon as an online and now brick-and-mortar retailer and distributor has added to this urgency.”
