Blockchain Tracking System For Produce Launched By Paramount Software Solutions

Blockchain, News | October 18, 2019 By:

IT services provider Paramount Software Solutions has announced the launch of its first blockchain-based provenance tracking portal.

Founded in 1997, Paramount is an ISO 9001: 2015 certified IT solutions firm providing technical and IT recruiting services in government and the private sector. The company has over 200 employees based in the United States, with a diverse range of technical specializations.

The company’s new blockchain-based provenance tracking portal, called Farm to Plate, aims to address recall prevention of farm and field products. The tracking system, which is built on HyperledFger Fabric 1.4 running within Docker Containers on Ubuntu Linux 18.04, provides real- time insight into the origination of a product and provides handling information (like location, date and time tracking) of the raw product/s, and data on how it is gathered and proceeds thru the system for delivery, and all of it stored on blockchain.

“In the case of a recall, information gathered from the portal can be narrowed down to specific lot / bundle, and ultimately location and minimize wastage by not recalling all the products,” the company said. “With the use of blockchain technology, the data gathered through provenance and tracking, can be helpful to companies in preventing future damages / recalls through dependable data of entries, because it is immutable, transparent, and secured.”

Pramod Sajja, President & CEO, Paramount Software Solutions, said that they understand that every business has problems that are very specific to them, and solutions need to be developed keeping those exact needs.

“Farm to Plate was built keeping that in mind – not only does it provide easy access to very powerful and solid data that is immutable, and easily traceable but it can be customized to the needs of businesses wanting to go into the specifics that are more relevant to them,” Sajja said.
