Consumers, who buy organic food, have expectations about its quality and rely on certifying organizations to verify this quality as well as to provide information about the origin of organic products. However, organic food traceability knows several issues, such as problems with organic labelling, certification fraud, and concerns about the transparency of food information.
We have designed and developed our Organic Food Traceability System to tackle the above-mentioned problems using Blockchain. The use of blockchain in food traceability would provide transparency, security, and reliability to the organic food supply chain. Blockchain allows for a decentralized, tamper-proof record of each transaction within the supply chain, making it easier to trace the origin of the food and verify that it is indeed organic.
The system comprises 1 major module: User.
The user can register using themselves as Farmers, Manufacturers, Distributors, Retailers, and Consumers. They can log in using their credentials. They can view their profile. They can even change the password if they want.
Only farmers and manufacturers can manage the products. They add, update and view the products that the user requires. They can even search for products using filters.
The user can add and view products in the entry product list. They can even search for the lists using filters. They can view the supply chain with all the details. The user can add or view products in the exit product list by choosing from the entry product list. They can even assign the products to the customers. They can even search for the exit product list using filters. They can view the supply chain with all the details.
Only Retailers and Consumers can add or view products in the Used Today module. They can choose the products from the entry product list. They can also search for the list using filters. They can view the supply chain with all the details. The user can also track their food. They can also check the history and supply chain.
