The San Diego-based seafood firm Bumble Bee Foods is using blockchain platform for yellowfin tuna traceability.
Launched in co-operation with German tech company SAP, the new platform monitors the supply chain of yellowfin tuna from the time it’s caught in Indonesia to the moment it hits store shelves. The tuna is set to go on sale in the U.S. in the coming weeks.
“We’ve been doing traceability for a long time and we decided to leverage new technologies to make it even more secure. Quite frankly, we’re just scratching the surface on the capabilities of the technology in our supply chain,’’ said Tony Costa, Bumble Bee’s chief information officer.
As a reminder, earlier this year, Wozniak said that blockchain is a bubble which could have potential in the future. At the same time, he has admired the Bitcoin, calling the coin “the only digital gold”.
