- With NSF International the VeChain Foundation has gained another well-known partner who will use the VeChain ToolChain™.
- The risk management solutions provider has developed a new food safety certificate that is stored and continuously updated on the VeChainThor blockchain.
The VeChain Foundation has attracted another big name with NSF International just days after gaining Grant Thornton as a partner. NSF International is an American company that operates in 150 countries worldwide and is a provider of risk management solutions for public health and safety. Producers, regulators and consumers turn to NSF International to develop public health standards and certification programs to protect food, water, consumer products and the environment in general.
NSF International has announced yesterday that it has issued a new Coronavirus Safety Protection Certification using VeChain’s Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform, the VeChain ToolChain™. The company stated that there is currently a lack of methods for assessing the level of viruses in food, which is why it is introducing the VeChain based certification.
The report produced by NSF International will be uploaded to the VeChainThor Blockchain and continuously updated. By scanning a QR code, consumers can view the certificate on the Blockchain and check the relevant information.
The certification can help companies to reduce the risk of infection and contamination in production and operations, improve awareness of prevention and control of personnel, provide companies with assurance that production and operations are conducted in a safe and proper manner and effectively reduce the risk of product contamination. The official Chinese press release also states:
This cooperation, combined with NSF’s professional certification services and VeChain’s advanced standardized blockchain products, helps enterprises to improve their own immunity while practicing their internal food safety skills, and present healthy and safe product information to consumers in a simple and intuitive way to improve product credibility.
Currently, Tongliao Jingshian Catering Management Service Co, Ltd. and Qingdao Aiyuan Food Co, Ltd. are the first companies to receive NSF certification for coronavirus protection. In addition, the VeChain Foundation strives to further expand its commitment to food safety and sustainability via VeChain ToolChain™, as stated in the release:
At present, VeChain is building a network of professional partners around the world, and continues to make efforts in fields including food safety, sustainable products, energy and fashion. In the face of the rapidly accelerating digital demand in the post-epidemic era, Vechain will continue to optimize and iterate VeChain ToolChain™ products, deeply combine the powerful advantages of third-party professional services to expand business fields, and realize the vision of empowering the real economy.
