Is it really that new?
The blockchain was not previously used in the food industry. Carrefour is a pioneer on this subject in Europe with the first application, in March 2018, of the blockchain technology in chicken from Auvergne Filière Qualité Carrefour (FQC).
What is the long-term objective?
In 2019, Carrefour has gradually integrated the blockchain technology into the following Carrefour Quality Lines: chicken from Auvergne, Cauralina tomato, farm-raised eggs from Loué, rocamadour AOC cheese, Gillot fresh milk, Norwegian salmon and Christmas chicken. By 2022, the objective is to apply this technology to all FQC food products.
