A supply chain research and product development initiative with IIT-Delhi to bring a $80 million honey export trade on a hyperledger based traceable platform
Since 2003, India’s honey entering into UK and European Union has been under the scanner for adulteration and presence of antibiotics such as ‘streptomycin’. India’s poor internal quality and testing standards is the culprit alongwith adulterated Chinese honey which enters into India, gets packaged as ‘Indian honey’ and is exported to this region.
Incentivising bee keeping, thereby increasing honey exports is a key initiative of the current Prime Minister towards his vision in doubling incomes of Indian farmers by 2022.
Srijan has partnered with IIT-Delhi, India’s leading technology institute, to study the honey supply chain of various categories of honey exporters in India, and build a honey traceability platform from farm to shipment.
This is a classic example of how technology can be used for public and national good.
Connect and enable efficient, transparent and accountable 'green trade’ to reach higher standards for production and sustainability. Blockchain holds the promise of disruptive transformation, enabling the consumer to get the ability to trace their food from "farm to fork" bringing trust and transparency across the complete supply chain for food. Srijan makes food traceability possible, tracking products to their source for enhanced food authenticity and safety.
