Blockchain technology adds a level of truth, that all partners have access to at all times and at the same time. Therefore, we decided to develop a blockchain solution for the egg supply chain (from feed to fork). The Powerchain solution provides transparency about the product performance on its journey through the supply chain and the performance of all the actors. Data is captured and shared in detail through every step of the supply chain by every supply chain partner. For example about the living conditions of the chickens, the type of feeding and stable light schedules at farm level. This way risk areas like food safety, quality, animal welfare and environmental conditions are captured at batch level. All this information is logged into the Powerchain and now also made assessable to consumers, they can check this data at the individual egg! We developed a special website. The number on the egg gives the unique farm identification and links to the detailed information like the expiry date, the route of the eggs and the conditions of the chickens at the time of egg laying. Why not see for yourself?
So the data logged to SIM Powerchain create a connection between consumer and farmer and the chickens. All participants are dedicated to strive for continuous improvements and that commitment is also made visible on the website. Consumers can learn about the farmers and their stories. This can be checked by the consumer per individual egg.
SIM is the technology partner that verifies that the data on supply chain partners, the product and the batches is timely, accurate and complete. This can be seen by all actors including the consumer.
The role of SIM is to facilitate the discussion and consensus of which data to share with which supply chain partner. SIM designs and develops its own blockchain solution. We act as project manager to ensure an efficient coordination of the implementation.
