Vottun > Business > Food Traceability: Certification of Origin


Foodstuff’s journey from farm to table usually comprises many transactions between different organizations and people. The ability to track and trace foodstuffs’ journey is necessary to ensure that the food consumed is not only safe and fresh but is also regulatory-compliant, and wastage are minimized.

Today’s conventional supply chain systems don’t guarantee food safety, freshness and regulatory compliance. Fueled by inaccurate supply chain management and lack of a technological framework that can differentiate fakes from genuine foodstuffs, trade in counterfeit foods has become a flourishing venture.

What if we could simplify the supply chain process, enabling transactions to be shared transparently, securely and efficiently among every stakeholder in the supply chain?


Vottun uses Blockchain to create unparalleled accountability and visibility in the food supply chain. Vottun is the only platform of its kind, linking food growers, food processors, food distributors, and retailers via an immutable, permission, and shared ledger.
