澳洲最大粮食出口商试用区块链追踪系统

据《澳大利亚金融评论》报道,澳大利亚最大粮食出口商CBH集团正在与悉尼创业公司AgriDigital进行合作,测试区块链技术在燕麦运输跟踪中的应用。

报道指出,这些供应链数据能够被展示给潜在的买家,从而提高买家对粮食存储的信心,最终提高澳大利亚粮食种植者的销售,澳大利亚粮食种植者如今正在寻求扩大到亚洲更具竞争力的市场。

 

下周,这个试行项目将在CBH的南澳大利亚燕麦加工商Blue Lake Milling首次进行试验。该集团表示如果初始阶段获得成功,他们可能会扩大这个项目到其价值40亿美元的西澳大利亚粮仓。

最近几个月,全球其他公司也正在开展类似的项目。比如,中国电子商务巨头阿里巴巴正在与新西兰乳企恒天然(Fonterrra)、维生素和补充剂供应商澳佳宝(Blockmores)以及澳大利亚和新西兰的邮政服务合作组建一个区块链联盟,旨在减少食品供应链欺诈。

全球零售巨头沃尔玛也透露在此前与IBM和清华大学进行的区块链供应链应用中获得了成功,该项目旨在跟踪中国猪肉市场的产品运输。

CBH Group, Australia's largest grain exporter, is to test blockchain technology in the tracking of oat shipments, reports say.

According to The Australian Financial Review, the group – a grain growers' cooperative – is partnering with Sydney-based startup AgriDigital for the pilot project, which aims at using a blockchain-based system to trace the grain's origin and and document its quality.

This supply chain data, the news source noted, can be displayed to potential buyers in the hope of improving confidence in grain stores and, eventually, to boost sales for Australian grain growers who are looking to expand to more competitive markets in Asia.

"Anything allowing proof of provenance can create value to Australia," CBH Group's chief executive Andy Crane told the publication.

The pilot is slated to commence next week at CBH's oats processor, Blue Lake Milling in South Australia. As a next step, the group said it is likely to expand the pilot to include its $4 billion Western Australia granary if the initial phase proves to be successful.

CBH is just the latest organisation to trial the potential of blockchain in monitoring the movement of goods, and other companies worldwide have moved to launch similar pilots in recent months.

China's e-commerce giant Alibaba is working with New Zealand-based dairy cooperative Fonterra, vitamin and supplement supplier Blackmores, as well as postal services in Australia and New Zealand, to form a consortium aimed at reducing food supply chain fraud.

And global retail giant Walmart has also indicated initial success from its previous collaboration with IBM and Tsinghua University of Beijing in testing blockchain-based supply chain applications, focusing on tracking shipments in China's massive pork market.
