Abstract

For helping preserve the cultural traditions of populations and their social and economic sustainability, the European Union created a set of denominations such as “Protected Designation of Origin” (PDO), “Protected Geographical Indication” (PGI) and “Traditional Specialty Guaranteed” (TSG), for certifying and guaranteeing a set of characteristics of the region in the product and/or manufacturing process. In this paper, a blockchain-based traceability platform is proposed, to trace PDO/PGI/TSG products from their source to the final consumers, using Hyperledger Fabric. This platform enables the transparent registration of activities throughout the value chain and provides the traceability information demanded by informed consumers while, at the same time, helps in avoiding forgeries.
