Agrello Deploys Smart Contracts for Transparent Billing in Temp-Sense’s IoT-based Cold Chain Solution
Food products supply chain is a rather complex use case. The process from a farm to a store shelf or restaurant kitchen takes time and often involves a long supply chain, where food products are handed from one party to another for storing, processing, or delivery. Without an active and reliable end-to-end monitoring solution, such supply chain can’t immediately react to adverse changes in handling conditions, and problems are only observed on the receiving end. Any break in the process, and decayed food product on a store shelf or in a restaurant kitchen goes to waste and creates compliance and reputational risks.
The Context: Temp-Sense Food Safety Compliance Solution
The online temperature monitoring system Temp-Sense includes wireless detectors installed in refrigerators and hot food counters, across the supply chain. All data that is measured is available “in the cloud” in real time and is displayed on the dashboard where the store and restaurant manager (or an internal auditor) can easily keep an eye on the processes within the entire supermarket or restaurant chain.
In this system, the IoT network service provider company Thinnect handles the sourcing and deployment of automatic IoT sensors into the Food supply chains, as well as collecting and processing the sensors’ data. Thinnect employs a specialised IoT blockchain to run the IoT service, which ensures that the sensors can’t be tampered with across the supply chain.
FoodDocs, a digital food safety and compliance expert company, uses the collected data to support supermarket and restaurant chains in assessing food safety and creation of documents required for food safety compliance.
Altogether, Temp-Sense delivers a digital solution that enables a proactive, reliable and highly efficient food safety and compliance process. Please see the blog post about Temp-Sense ...
