Spain: They use blockchain technology for the traceability of hake
The technology blockchain and its traceability function are revolutionizing the fishing industry in Spain , specifically in the case of hake.
Through this innovative solution, consumers can track the hake supply chain from catch to plate, providing transparency, safety and quality assurance throughout the process.
Puerto de Celeiro bets on blockchain for food traceability
In the Spanish town of Celeiro, a technology-based traceability solution has been implemented blockchain for hake, the region's star product. This technology allows consumers to access detailed information about the fish supply chain with just a click, including who caught it, how and where .
Initially, the use of blockchain is limited to hake, which represents almost 90% of the turnover in Puerto de Celeiro. However, the businessmen involved in the project intend to expand its application to other species, such as mackerel, squid or bonito.
The traceability system based on blockchain offers a number of significant benefits. First, it improves efficiency in the supply chain. It does this by providing a shared, permanent record of all data generated on the feed journey. This guarantees the reliability of the brands, food safety, sustainability and the freshness of the food.
In addition, this technology helps prevent food fraud and waste, which contributes to the reduction of economic and environmental losses. By establishing an immutable and transparent record of each step in the supply chain, potential issues can be quickly identified and corrective action taken in a timely manner.
The commitment to technology blockchain in the food sector could grow in the future
The traceability solution developed by Lãberit, in collaboration with Puerto de Celeiro, uses technology blockchain de IBM Food Trust. This platform allows you to generate a permanent and secure record of all relevant data. In this way, suppliers, producers and other participants in the food industry value chain can safely access it in a transparent manner.
In the pilot phase of the project, the traceability system is being applied blockchain 10% of the Celeiro skewer hake catches. However, it is expected that in the future it can be implemented on a larger scale. It is estimated that the volumes transmitted by Puerto de Celeiro amount to approximately 2,000 boxes of 12-13 kilos of skewered hake per month.
This means that around 24,000 to 26,000 kilos of Celeiro skewer hake per month will benefit from this traceability solution. End consumers will be able to find out, at any time, when and where their hake was caught, as well as ensure that it complies with the sustainability standards certified by the Friends of the Sea seal.
It should be noted that in recent years, Spain has shown a growing interest in the application of technology blockchain . One of the industries that has invested the most has been fishing. Blockchain has been used to guarantee traceability and food safety at various stages of the production process. A prominent example is the mussel pilot project . It was carried out by the DOP Regulatory Council of Mexillón de Galicia in collaboration with the certification and digital development companies Kiwa and NTT Data.
