Technology Powered Sustainability Solutions
Verifish is an Irish Technology company which provides software and advisory services to the seafood sector. The company utilises blockchain technology in its bespoke software package to improve traceability and sustainability by digitally recording transactions in a supply chain.
Traceability and sustainability are important topics for consumers who wish to learn more about the food they are buying and where it comes from. Recent consumer trends highlight a trend to living a more sustainable lifestyle to help protect the environment for future generations.
Companies now recognise that blockchain technology can help implement their corporate buying policy, whilst the product’s provenance is important in educating consumers to make better informed decisions.
Brands see that the independent verification of their claims as necessary to build that trust with consumers. The independent verification and the telling of the products story have led firms to engage with our Verifact platform.
Verifact takes information from the supply chain and demonstrates to consumers in a quick but informative way, that the produce they are purchasing is sustainably or organically produced or certified. For more information click on www.vfact.com
