Calconut, a Spanish nut company in the international arena, has positioned itself as the benchmark in the sector for its capacity for innovation and leadership, by implementing blockchain technology to ensure transparency and confidence in their B2B and B2C processes, with the aim of providing information on the origin of food, its composition, characteristics and ingredients, the fingerprint and how it has been produced, as highlighted by Empresa Exterior in its recently issued report.
With the use of blockchain technology, consumers of Spain’s leading nut company will have access to all information concerning supply and traceability throughout the process. From the raw material, such as the elaboration and up to the packaging of the final product, are some of the data to which they will have access, thus providing confidence and security to the client at the time of acquiring the product, allowing to save time and costs in the accomplishment of the transactions.

Since 2005, the year of its creation, Calconut has led the trend of diversification that marked the market and now, reinforces its commitment to transparency, implementing the blockchain platform of the firm Vottun for its distinction in this technology and experience in the agro-food sector. The report also states that this startup has the advantage of being designed to facilitate the development of blockchain applications in different areas within the industries, so that companies can be more competitive and guarantee greater transparency and security in their products.
Likewise, consumers will have access to all this information that appears on the product packaging, through a QR code that can be scanned from any mobile device. The data, being backed up by this disruptive technology, is immutable, so that it cannot be modified, nor falsified, which is a great advance to mark the guarantee and difference between Calconut products from others, of which the origin is unknown. In view of this, Juan Luis Peregrín Díaz, Calconut’s CEO, states that
“(…) Our concern to always offer the best products and services to our customers, makes us continually seek ways to optimize each process of our activity. By implementing the blockchain technology, we take another step in this direction, also fighting against fraud and improving the traceability of our products. With this, we once again demonstrate our commitment to transparency and innovation”, this is how Empresa Exterior describes it.
