Block Chain Traceability for Tea Tree Oil

Summary

The Australian tea tree industry is looking to gain better traceability along their supply chain, as export markets demand proven datasets to show the history and origins of pure Australian tea tree oil. This includes tracking products as they are grown on farm, processed, exported and eventually sold in various products to the end consumer. The Australian Tea Tree Industry Association is championing the roll out of an endtoend supply chain traceability solution leveraging blockchain technology. This agreement is to cover the Process Mapping Stage which will look to test whether and where there is value to be created and captured along the tea tree oil supply chain by creating better traceability of the oil from farm into final products. A Workshop will be convened with industry participants to map the various stages of the tea tree oil supply chain to understand the most critical data capture points and technology requirements. Through process mapping, our project group will identify the scope of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) as well as up to three subsequent phases of roll out.
