T18 Group, founded in the late 1800’s in Turin, Italy, represents one of the most modern and important realities in the Italian fruits and vegetables industry. With distribution centers in the most vital Italian regions of agricultural production, from north to south (Campania, Sicily, Sardegna, Puglia, Emilia-Romagna, Lazio, Veneto, Piemonte), today T18 reaches over 600 producers to collaborate together to achieve a common goal.
The added value of the local production must not be lost along the transformation chain of food: a transparent and secure traceability is the key that strengthens the collaboration between the different players.
Conscious of the role and the responsibilities of the journey that food makes towards the consumer's dining tables, T18 Group decided to make its supply chain transparent to facilitate the activities involved, value the origin of the products and the processes, using blockchain technology.
With the blockchain technology provided by Foodchain, the management of the logistic flow is facilitated and empowered T18 with a tool to communicate quality and efficiency to its clients.
The timing of harvest, processing and delivery are essential to supply the final consumer with fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables. T18 has chosen Foodchain to guarantee consumers that these products carry full organoleptic properties and are able to communicate their freshly harvested quality.
