Improving traceability and authenticity
“To improve authenticity and traceability of tea products, VeChain is working with one of the most historic tea businesses in Japan run by the Fuji MARUMO Tea Garden,” VeChain writes.
By using an advanced traceability and IoT solutions, FujiMARUMO Tea’s customers have the ability to check the origin of their tea products via a smartphone. They can read the NFC chips that are embedded on the package.
“In this first trial batch, there are a total of 100 products embedded with VeChain’s NFC chips which serve as a memorable limited edition offering of Fuji Tea. This trial is the Proof of Concept for the larger partnership that will be implemented upon completion,” VeChain notes.
For this solution, every product has a unique ID that assures exclusiveness to the line. Via the NFC chip, customers will be abler to check that the origin or their tea is from Fuji MARUMO Tea Garden.
