Bumble Bee, SAP Use Blockchain to Trace Tuna
Blockchain technology lets companies store data and create a tamper-proof supply chain history that can be shared and seen by each participant. For Bumble Bee, blockchain is the safest possible way to share data between parties because it is incorruptible and verifiable. Bumble Bee is the first food company to incorporate SAP blockchain technology into its production.
“This solution is an example of how blockchains can be used to revolutionize the future of food,” said Oliver Betz, global head and senior vice president of SAP Innovative Business Solutions. “It creates transparency and traceability across the food supply chain, from the ocean, across the cold chain, to the warehouse, store and our table.”
SAP Cloud Platform Blockchain enables customers, partners and developers to conveniently use this distributed ledger technology. It allows enterprises to build new solutions, as well as extensions for existing applications across industries and lines of business.
Bumble Bee Foods’ Natural Blue by Anova fair-trade certified ahi tuna steaks can be found in 12-ounce bags at retailers nationwide including Albertsons/Safeway, Hy-Vee and Price Chopper. The company acquired the high-quality frozen brand in late 2013 through the purchase of Anova Food.
