Products move from producer to consumer through complicated networks called supply chains. These routes of custody involve many people and organizations, and oftentimes cross international borders. All of these product touch-points are opportunity for contamination or willful adulteration of the product.
High value products like authentic high-end wine, honey or olive oil can be diluted with lesser value amendments, which misleads the consumer and can introduce food safety issues.
Carverr Inc. has a solution. On this episode of Talking Biotech, Florida plant geneticist Kevin Folta speaks with Dr. Ellen Jorgensen, Chief Science Officer, and CEO Vishall Bhuyan, the co-founders of the company. They use a signature blend of probiotics in the products that can be detected with a simple assay. This specific signature beacons the presence of adulteration and ensures fidelity and transparency throughout the supply chain, ensuring customers are receiving exactly what they purchased.
