Mangoes on the blockchain? Thanks to Adelaide-based startup T-Provenance it’s more likely than you think.
T-Provenance will work with Queensland horticulture peak body Growcom and mango producer Manbulloo to integrate its technology to monitor mangoes through the supply chain – from farm to retailer – to ensure food safety, quality, traceability and authenticity.
The CRC estimated successful adoption of the new technology could save the mango industry 10% of its overall value, or $14 million a year.
Adelaide agtech-focused blockchain startup T-Provenance has received $500,000 in funding through Data61 and the CRCNA, the Cooperative Research Centre for developing Northern Australia, to run a pilot aimed at supporting mango producers.
