Preserve the identity of commodity products with BioTags™

The Industry Challenge

Commodity products are aggregated as they move through the supply chain, and existing high-volume infrastructure lacks the capability to preserve their identities. This prevents opportunities to create value-add products and collect data that will inform operational decisions. BioTags enable true product differentiation, creating additional business and product value for commodity supply chains.

The Index Advantage

  • BioTags provide complete supply chain traceability for aggregated commodities, which enables enhanced business analytics that improve margins & quality control.
  • Cost-effective method to provide indisputable evidence of ethical and sustainable production.
  • Detect fraudulent and adulterated products in complex global supply chains to reduce demurrage and contract disputes.

One Solution,
Complete Coverage.

BioTags are a secure yeast product that act as a microscopic barcode to authenticate and trace a range of individual products, commodities and ingredients, independent of the packaging. They can be easily mixed with or sprayed onto products, and can withstand harsh environments along the supply chain.

Using common molecular techniques, BioTags can be identified on-site or in a lab at any point along the supply chain, with quantifiable detection well below parts-per-million. An unlimited number of unique sequences can be created, with each logged in our customer portal, Trailhead™, and linked to brand owner and supply chain information. BioTags provide verifiable product differentiation for commodity products.
