TORONTO, Jan. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Graph Blockchain Inc. (“Graph” or “Company”) (CSE: GBLC) is pleased to announce a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) entered into between Datametrex AI Limited (“Datametrex”), an associated company of Graph, with Lotte Data Communication Company, (“LDCC”). The Company, in collaboration with Datametrex and LDCC, intends to provide the expertise and technology in building blockchain solutions for the importation of Canadian Beef.
Further to the previous press release on November 7, 2018 (click here for more information), regarding Graph’s discussion to build blockchain solutions for the safe and secure importation of Canadian Beef, senior management of both Lotte Data Communications Company and Datametrex met at the Canadian Embassy in Seoul, South Korea to sign the MOU in the presence of Michael Danagher, Canadian Ambassador to South Korea and Sonja Panday, Counsellor of Economic Affairs for the Province of Ontario.
The MOU provides the initial framework for Graph, working with Datametrex and LDCC to jointly develop Blockchain Supply Chain Management Solutions for livestock products from Canada. The Company believes that building a Supply Chain Management for the importation of livestock products will increase the likelihood that consumers have safer and more reliable livestock products. Additionally, the Company believes that such a system will enable manufacturers and distributors to respond promptly if any health issues are detected with these products. This system will be designed to generate information at each stage of distribution through IoT sensors and to prevent forgery through blockchain technology. The secure information that is generated will be available to users in real-time so that they can quickly track and respond to situations.
As part of a full Global Food Supply Chain Management eco-system, Graph has also had initial and continuing discussions with Provincial Trade Ministries regarding agricultural data assets of farmers and ranchers. As stakeholders in the eco-system, Canadian farmers can expect to have opportunities for (i) greater access into Asian markets and (ii) increased demand for their products, through the transparency of the system.
“Great job by the team in putting this together with Lotte. It’s great to see strategy executed, and with Graph being validated through the MOU, we continue working towards a Definitive Agreement with LDCC and anticipate exploring opportunities to expand to other related companies,” says Peter Kim, CEO of the Company.
