STATUS QUO

Various EU legislation-approved quality logos are used to certify the authenticity, origin, method of production (in EU: ‘PDO’, ‘PGI’ and ‘TSG’).
Quality logo = premium price

LIMITATIONS

• The quality logos are easy to falsify and reprint
• Premium prices are charged on inferior products

RIDDLE&CODE SOLUTION

Attach a non-removable crypto tag, which stores provenance data on blockchain, to the product packaging.

BENEFITS

• Fraud prevention: impossible to falsify, damage is immediately detectable
• Flexibility: crypto tag can be updated with new data by the stakeholders in the supply chain, and time stamped in the blockchain
• Retailers have a reliable tool to validate the quality of their product
• Improves customers experience

Every-time the product is handled to a new stakeholder the information gets time-stamped registered on the blockchain, visible to everyone.

Validation and registry of new information is done by using a NFC-enabled phone.
