SafeTraces has developed a DNA based edible barcode technology for food safety and traceability applications.


SafeTraces’s edible barcodes are food safe, non-living particles that can be applied to a variety of products to provide a “fingerprint” that cannot be forged. This technology is aimed at food source assurance applications including source verification and traceability, adulteration detection, processing plant sanitation, and safety assurance.


Our investment in SafeTraces was driven by their unique solution providing enhanced traceability and product quality assurance. SafeTraces helps the customer and the consumer source authentic products and ingredients. SafeTraces protects the investment of companies that are spending time and resources making products that are better for consumers and grown more sustainably through validated sourcing technology.
