KnowSeafood customers will be able to trace their sustainably harvested seafood transparently from catch to plate.

VeChain ToolChain™ Powers Producers Market To Onboard U.S. Seafood Import Platform KnowSeafood

  (CHINA, 12/4/2020)

Challenges and opportunities posed by the pandemic are reacting in real time to consumers' needs in the food sector. For the purpose of facilitating fresh, reliable supply of seafood in the U.S. marketplace, KnowSeafood announced its implementation of Producers Market's powerful transparency application, StoryBird, powered by VeChain ToolChain.

Through the Storybird application, KnowSeafood customers will be able to trace their sustainably harvested seafood transparently from catch to plate.

KnowSeafood storyBird Technology keeps you up-to-date on the transparent process from before you even order your seafood to right when you open your box.

Americans spend U$102 billion each year on seafood. However, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), about 80-90% of U.S. consumers still did not meet their seafood consumption recommendation generally due to the mislabelling of imported seafood products and unfamiliarity with preparation methods.

It is further proven by the Food Marketing Institute's first-ever Power of Seafood survey that half of the interviewed U.S. shoppers wanted more information on quality and freshness. The FDA also published guidelines and advice for consumers to acquire safe seafood, advising customers to look for the label containing information on where the fish was harvested, processed and certifications. This compels producers to improve their transparency.

Through verifiable tech-driven systems and high sustainability standards, KnowSeafood is able to guarantee the quality of your product, taking the fear out of getting great natural seafood to your plate.

As the coronavirus pandemic is closing or limiting restaurants in America, the consumers' behaviors shifted to their own kitchen, boosting seafood to be the fastest growing supermarket category during the last week of May 2020 and supermarket sales have continued to surge through July 2020, which brings increasing demand on reliably sourced seafood.

To combat seafood fraud and supply chain shakeups, KnowSeafood chooses VeChain ToolChainTM to enhance its strategy of directly connecting farmers with consumers using blockchain technology.

VeChain ToolChainTM Secures and Enables Food Safety

As the world's leading enterprise-friendly public blockchain platform, VeChain provides the market ready one-stop data BaaS platform VeChain ToolChainTM, which allows blockchain technology to be deployed with the fastest lead time compared with any other platform in the industry.

By using the user friendly templates built into VeChain ToolChainTM, local seafood farmers can easily upload harvesting, processing and shipping information onto the VeChainThor Blockchain, which later integrates with the StoryBird data visibility module to be presented publicly for the end users to validate product origin and trace logistics of delivery.

The deployment of blockchain ultimately bridges key knowledge gaps between all stakeholders in the trade.

Starting from Q4 in 2020, multiple seafood categories on the KnowSeafood platform will be traced by VeChain ToolChainTM ,including Norwegian Salmon, North Atlantic Haddock, Peruvian Mahi-Mahi, New England Sea Scallops,  Maine Lobster, and many more global species.

Daniel McQuade, Co-Founder and CEO of KnowSeafood stated, "Our groundbreaking experience working with blockchain has proven to us how powerful a solution it is to traceability and sustainability. The American consumer is demanding the kind of transparency and provenance that blockchain technology delivers. In working with VeChain and the Storybird application, we are bringing our customers the best technology in the market to have immutable trust in seafood from our KnowSeafood online marketplace".

Sunny Lu, the Co-Founder and CEO of VeChain, said, "Statistics have shown that in Q2 2020, U$1 of every U$5 spent by U.S. consumers came from online orders. Dramatic increases in spending can be found for online grocers, food delivery, meal kits, and more. There will be surging growth in the e-commerce food sector and VeChain will be happy to be part of the emerging new business scenario, starting from the seafood sector."

With the growing demand for authentic and premium food products, there is a great potential for VeChain ToolChain™ to power more Producers Markets partnerships in the future.
