In the following video registered during the scientific congress for wine sector Enoforum which brought together 1200 peoples in May 2019, Mattia Nanetti from the start-up Wenda gives us an introduction of two systems that are been developed in order to trace and track the wine and other beverages temperature along the supply chain.
The technology aim is to reply to this question « what is happening to my wine when it leaves my winery ? »
Indeed, people tasting the wine at the end of the supply chain might find that it is not the same as when it was tasted in the winery.
Therefore it is important to understand in details what happened along the complex supply chain in order to be able to correct mistakes.
Two systems based on the IoT internet of things technologies are been presented.
The first one uses a device that is placed on the pallet and can trace the wine from wineries to distribution warehouses. It can measure temperature, light, humidity or shocks and is able to provide these information live to an internet platform.
It gives the possibility to set different ranges of alarms or pre-alarms that can be shared with the actors of the supply chain in order to correct situations before they become critical.
The second one is based on a device that is placed inside the beverage boxes in order to reach the final retailer (restaurant, wine bar...). It is important to cover this part of the supply chain as, even if many producers work with Ex works transport, the product is still associated with the producer image through the wine label. The system will allow final retailer and producers to exchange information on the product.
At last, the system will also thanks to block chain technology be useful for insurance companies.
