The retail giant Walmart has launched a pilot program to use blockchain-powered IBM Food Trust to track the shrimp exports from Indian farmers.

The blockchain platform, allowing to trace the product from the sea to the plate, was created in partnership with Andhra Pradesh-based seafood processor Sandhya Aqua and U.S.-based supplier Stanley Pearlman Enterprise Inc. 

“This end-to-end blockchain pilot is the first of its kind in India and has the potential to create long-term economic opportunity for the shrimp farming community in Andhra Pradesh, directly benefiting the farmers through new skills training and development,” Cowdary Kunam, Sandhya Aqua’s  managing director, said.

The platform is a part of a larger food safety program from Sam’s Club, which requires seafood providers to follow best safety practices such as the Best Aquaculture Practice.
