Italy employs blockchain to protect against Sicilian blood orange fraud

Italy’s citrus sector is implementing blockchain technology in a bid to stave of attempts by fraudsters to pass off South African oranges as PGI Sicilian blood oranges. By affixing high-tech tags to crates of PGI Sicilian blood oranges, the hope is that this will boost transparency and protect against food fraud.

Termed the ROUGE Project, the initiative was devised by a consortium of over 600 stakeholders, with over 6,500 hectares under cultivation of Moro, Sanguillo and Tarocco oranges.
