Problems With The Present System

  1. problems with the present system of food safetyNo way for the consumer to know the source of the food. For example 1 have no way of knowing whether the particular apple I am buying came from Farmer Jones or not.

  2. No information to verify the “packed on” or “best before” dates.

  3. No traceability. For example in case of an e coli outbreak, the tracing has to be done manually by sifting through records of various entities in the supply chain including retailers, wholesalers, importers, shippers, transporters, etc. Very cumbersome and slow.
