Carrefour, the French multinational retailer, has now launched the second phase of its plans which aim to track milk production and its life cycle using blockchain technology.
As per sources, the supermarket giant is anticipating the release of its Carrefour Quality Line (CQL) fresh micro-filtered full-fat milk in a range of specially designed bottles carrying QR-codes. These QR Codes, when scanned through a smartphone app, will allow customers to look up various details, including dairy farm GPS locations, feeding details of cows, and time as well as process of milk packaging.
The French President, Emmanuel Macron stated that the implementation of blockchain technology can prove to be of great benefit. He said that distributed ledgers have various capabilities which can be used to enhance the global positioning of France in the agricultural sector.
