South Australia Project Will Track Barley From Paddock to Beverage

A collaboration in South Australia between Coopers Brewery, Grain Producers SA, and agtech company Trust Provenance will track barley from the field to the final beverage product.

Backed by funding from the South Australia’s government’s AgTech Growth Fund, malting barley growers will work with Trust Provenance’s software to capture data points along the supply chain that will then link into Cooper’s software to enable a full traceability platform.

The data will be viewed through a unique QR code for each batch of barley to allow for real-time monitoring, management, and feedback. Ultimately, Trust Provenance CEO Andrew Grant stated, it would be ideal to have a unique QR code on each box of beer, telling the story from the farm gate to Coopers.

Although the program would like to involve as many growers as possible, the initial target is for 10 to participate in the initial 12-month project.
