Block Chain Traceability for Tea Tree Oil part 2

To resolve the persistent issue of fraudulent dilution and adulteration of pure tea tree oil, the Australian industry aims to gain better traceability along its supply chain, as export markets demand proven data sets to show the history and origins of 100% pure Code of Practice accredited 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. A solution to the need for accurate traceability will be achieved by using block chain protocols and appropriate digital records.
