Nashua, New Hampshire – July 23, 2019 – Blocksyte, a SaaS-based blockchain application company focused on the food industry supply chain, today issued a response regarding the recent recall of several food products due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
“Blocksyte is prepared to assist all companies involved in the recent Listeria recall,” said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, Blocksyte CEO. “Our application enables companies to track and measure shipments in real time across six attributes while storing this data as an immutable record on the Blocksyte blockchain, underpinned by IBM. This capability enables companies to recall food shipments quickly and with high accuracy regarding the exact source of contamination. In addition, consumers are able to identify contaminated shipments with a simple scan of a QR code on the food packaging.”
Additional features of the Blocksyte application include the ability for customers to incorporate smart contracts and electronic invoices integrated to cloud-based accounting systems and enabled by blockchain, meaning the data entered is immutable and cannot be altered, an important factor when products change hands several times as part of the typical supply chain journey. As stated above, this traceability can facilitate targeted product recalls instead of cumbersome national recalls.
Blocksyte is deployed on four continents and has a proven application to meet the needs of food industry supply chains, which are often distributed and complex, and require advanced capabilities. Added Pelz-Sharpe, “Blocksyte invites any supplier, distributor, or retailer impacted by the recall to contact us and take advantage of a no-obligation 30 day trial of the Blocksyte application.”
