Food industry player leverages on blockchain technology developed by DiSa

DISA Limited's wholly subsidiary, Disa Digital Safety Pte Ltd (DiSa), and KMP Private Ltd signed a proof-of-concept agreement on Monday to define the partnership, roles and responsibilities for testing and evaluation of DiSa's blockchain-based food trace solution.

One of the biggest live pig suppliers to Singapore, KMP Private Ltd is partnering DiSa to leverage on blockchain technology in digitally tracking and tracing the pork from its Indonesian piggery to the Singaporean consumer.

"Blockchains are secure by design. It brings complete traceability, transparency and authenticity to the food supply chain which helps to boost consumer confidence," said Eddie Chng, chief executive officer of DISA Limited.

Under this pilot programme, all pigs will be tagged with a RFID chip at birth. Encrypted records such as farm and pedigree pigs' details, batch numbers and date of slaughter can be accessed through a mobile application.

Market voices on:

"It is important to ensure food safety and what better way to do it other than giving the stakeholders the visibility of our entire supply chain with time-stamps using blockchain software application developed by DiSa," said Tan Hang Huat, managing director of KMP Private Ltd.
