Authenticating Digital Cheese Aids

Authenticating Digital Cheese Aids

In an effort to protect against Parmigiano fraud, the Consorzio del Parmigiano Reggiano (CFPR) joined forces with the Dutch/French consortium Kaasmerk Matec and USA-based p-Chip Corporation to launch a line of food-safe and secure traceability digital labels for its Parmigiano Reggiano cheese wheels. As a result of this new technology, brands will be able to provide previously unseen levels of traceability, inventory tracking, quality assurance testing, and product serialization.

As the Consortium explains, “The innovation combines food-safe Casein labels with the p-Chip micro transponder – a blockchain crypto-anchor that creates a digital ‘twin’ for physical items. This scannable new food tag is smaller than a grain of salt and highly durable, delivering next-generation visibility and traceability.”
