Provenance

OverviewSuggest Edit

Provenance is a platform that empowers brands to take steps toward greater transparency by tracing the origins and histories of products. Our platform allows businesses to make themselves, their products and supply chains more transparent and traceable. Provenance is building a traceability system for materials and products using a new kind of data system called a blockchain. It is a data system for securely storing information - inherently auditable, unchangeable and open. We use two kinds of data systems for this, packaged in one elegant user interface. Our transparency tools assemble image, identity and location to create profile, product and story pages. 

The company Project Provenance Ltd exists to empower people to change the way the global economy works. Creating and fostering open and accessible information about products is at our core, inspiring us to be active citizens through the things we choose to buy. Our common goal is to deliver meaningful change to commerce through open and accessible information about products and supply chains.
