Here at TrustBIX, we collect different types of data about food on its journey down the supply chain. Our goal is to make sure that producers’ claims, for example, “100% Canadian Beef,” are valid, trustworthy, and reliable. To prove it, we apply big data and blockchain technology, making the whole process transparent and traceable.
Our biggest challenge is making the industry more sustainable and ethical. We aim high, but we are sure that we can play our part in ending global hunger, mitigating climate change, achieving sustainability in food production, and improving waste management.
We address consumer and business demands by tracing food through the production and distribution chain – from Gate to Plate® – while building trust between consumers, producers, processors, and investors.
We want to expand our strategic sourcing solutions beyond beef production to include other livestock and grains. We also plan to add other traceable attributes, like “free from...” or “fed with...”.
