英国食品标准局成功试验区块链供应链监控系统

周一,英国食品安全监督机构——英国食品标准局(FSA)宣布,它已经成功地试验了一个基于区块链的供应链监控系统。

据新闻稿称,该试验追踪了一家未具名的牛屠宰场生产的肉类。结果显示,整个供应链的透明度都被提高了。

屠宰场和英国食品标准局都追踪了试验中的数据。

英国食品标准局信息管理部门主管Sian Thomas在一份声明中说,英国食品标准局认为,区块链技术可能会给食品行业带来真正的价值。

他说,之所以选择一家屠宰场,是因为:

工作需要大量的检查,并对结果进行整理......我们的方法是建立业界数据标准,让理论成为现实。我很高兴地看到我们能够证明区块链确实在食品行业的这一领域发挥作用。我认为现在有很大的机会让工业和政府共同努力来扩展和发展这种方法。

在试点之后,将对其他项目进行测试,让农民能够在7月获得有关他们动物的数据。

这一试验可能是英国监管机构第一次使用区块链来监控食品供应链,其他零售商已经进行了相应试验。沃尔玛、京东、阿里巴巴、Cargill和CBH集团都是一些使用区块链来追踪食品项目的公司。

The U.K.'s Food Standards Agency (FSA), a safety watchdog, announced Monday it has successfully piloted a blockchain-based supply chain monitoring system.

The trial tracked meat produced in an unnamed cattle slaughterhouse, providing "improved transparency" throughout the supply chain, according to a press release. Both the slaughterhouse and the FSA tracked data provided in the trial.

FSA head of information management Sian Thomas said in a statement that his agency thought "blockchain technology might add real value to a part of the food industry."

A slaughterhouse in particular was chosen because its "work requires a lot of inspection and collation of results," he said.

He added:

"Our approach has been to develop data standards with industry that will make theory reality and I'm delighted that we've been able to show that blockchain does indeed work in this part of the food industry. I think there are great opportunities now for industry and government to work together to expand and develop this approach."

Following the pilot, additional programs will be tested to give farmers access to data about their animals in July.

While this trial may have been the first time the regulatory agency used a blockchain to monitor food supply chains, various retailers have already begun experimenting with the use case. Walmart, JD.com, Alibaba, Cargill and CBH Group are just some of the firms which are using blockchain to track food items.
