The Australian division of World Wildlife Fund has decided to integrate the blockchain technology into its supply chains in order to track down and store data on various kinds of food.
WWF partnered up with the company BCG Digital Ventures to create a blockchain-based platform called OpenSC and bring the plan into reality.
What if you knew exactly how sustainable your food is, just by scanning a QR code with your phone? With OpenSC, you can.#OpenSC is a revolutionary digital platform developed by WWF-Australia and @BCGDV that allows you to track a product along its entire supply chain.

According to the official announcement of WWF Australia:
“OpenSC enables businesses to track their products – anything from food to tissue paper – by adding a unique blockchain code at the product’s point of origin, such as the moment a fish is caught at sea.”
Moreover, OpenSC will allow its users to scan a special QR-code on the food they want to buy in order to see the information on a specific product: from its properties to how it traveled in the supply chain.
This is not the first time an organization or company of a global scale is turning to the blockchain technology. We remind you:
