IDENTITY PRESERVED (ip) SOYBEANS
Our food’s journey from farm to fork involves many steps, and often traceability is lost. But today’s consumer is increasingly interested in knowing where their food comes from, how it's made, and what exactly happens on the trip to their dinner plate.
This pilot (March/April 2019) will provide a mechanism for soybean producers and food processors to capitalise on this demand and build additional value into their product.
In conjunction with Canadian Seed Growers Association (CSGA), Grain Discovery is building an end-to-end solution to track IP soybeans throughout the value chain. Starting at the breeding institution, through to the farmer, elevator, tofu manufacturer and finally the consumer who can scan the QR code on their tofu packet and the entire digital passport of the soybean is displayed instantly.
