Republic Systems is an Advisory Member of the Seafood Task Force, a pre-competitive collaboration tackling critical sustainability issues that cannot be solved by individual companies alone.
According to the 2018 Seafood Task Force Progress Report, “TruTrace, a modular electronic traceability system, has been developed for the Seafood Task Force through support from the World Wildlife Fund, Republic Systems and members.”
In May 2017, the World Wildlife Fund in cooperation with the STF engaged Republic Systems to develop a method of tracking and tracing Thai farmed shrimp and the shrimp feed through all stages of production, processing and distribution, including the ability to verify history, location or application of any item by means of documented, recorded identification. This system would replace the existing paper-based trace system, which was inefficient due to its associated time lag, the ability to alter the forms, and lack of contextual data.Show video
Republic Systems has contributed to the Accenture report “Tracing the Supply Chain: How blockchain can enable traceability in the food industry.”
The report is funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, whose mission is to foster path-breaking scientific discovery, environmental conservation, patient care improvements and preservation of the special character of the Bay Area.
According to the report, “Accenture and the Moore Foundation recognize the valuable insights of the members of the study’s Advisory Committee, including representatives from the World Wildlife Fund, IBM, SAP, Microsoft, Republic Systems, and Synapse Nexus. “
