The agency has chosen to use the mijin blockchain (a NEM protocol blockchain) to build and store its transaction records.
From the hunting ground to the restaurant, the agency requires recording data generated from the meat supply chain. This is the first government deployment of the mijin blockchain. Once meat data from the processing factory is recorded on the mijin blockchain, it cannot be tampered with.
It will be used as a benchmark to match data in the traditional supply chain. In case the entries don’t match, the new system automatically sends out alerts. This creates a transparent and traceable supply chain to monitor game meat, which guarantees the highest quality control of the perishable end product.
By using the mijin tamper-resistant blockchain, Japan Gibier Promotion Association will determine whether data (date, transit point, manager, item name, amount, price, etc) from the game meat processing factory is properly recording on the blockchain in a visible and verifiable way, and whether the alert system designed for automatic detection of falsified data is complete.
The association start deployment October and eventually roll out the new system nationwide.
