An innovative system of physical and digital grain traceability
Pallina®️ is an innovative Grain physical Tracing System, patented in Italy ad Europe, that helps in keeping identified a grain lot during its moving from harvest to processing thanks to Radio Frequency IDentification.
The technology is composed by transponders, dispensers, antennas and a cloud. The traceability is guaranteed by the physical presence of Pallina®️ in a grain lot. After its insertion into the grain mass, Pallina®️ is monitored throughout all its moving from silos to silos and/or from silos to mill by means of an antenna. The information detected by the antenna during Pallina®️ moving is collected in a cloud and can ensure the complete traceability of the grain.
We believe this technology is the missing ring of all traceability systems based on paper and/or IT (e.g. Block Chain). Moreover, our technology is specifically suitable for Identity Preserved grain projects or for the Organic sector, reducing significantly the fraud risks.
