BSI joins Innovate UK consortium

London, UK:  BSI has joined Innovate UK, a consortium to help digitise the UK’s fresh produce supply chains.

The two-year Trusted Bytes initiative led by Produce Logistics, will see the use of digital technology to help goods move across international borders and increase efficiency for the UK food sector. 

This will help to create proof of food provenance by digitising critical border transfer processes while also providing seamless real-time digital connectivity to supply chain operators. It will also enable a trusted data exchange that connects the supply chain with central government and other critical partners enhancing cross border transition, compliance and security.

BSI’s involvement includes the development of an application programming interface for customs clearance that will be compliant with the World Customs Organisation’s Safe Framework of Standards and integrated with HM Revenue & Customs.

BSI team will take a leading technology development role in the consortium, combining the use of leading supply chain standards and key data interoperability, it says.

Dan Purtell, group innovation director, BSI said: “Digital transformation is changing the way organisations operate and we’re confident that, by bringing together our expertise in supply chain security and trade compliance with the latest technology, we can help improve transparency, increase resilience and enhance long-term sustainability.”

The Trusted Bytes consortium includes: Fesa UK, Worldwide Fruit, Davis Worldwide, Hain Daniels, FreshLinc, FPN Lincolnshire, Contained Technologies UK, Excelerate Technology, and Blue Ring.
