TrustBIX Inc. (TSXV: TBIX) (OTCQB: TBIXF) (“TrustBIX” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the continuous collaboration between GBI Global Inc. (“GBI“), Cantriex Livestock (“Cantriex“) and TrustBIX to test-market shipments of high-quality Authentic Angus Canadian beef to Hong Kong, have received positive feedback. These shipments of beef were sourced from animals that feature tracked attributes – Angus, hormone-free, feed details, and Triple A grading or higher, as well as harvest and shipping dates.
“In the premium beef market, attributes are everything. TrustBIX allows us to raise our internal standards to the point that we are able to separate ourselves from our competitors and add a level of attribute confidence that many companies simply cannot match,” says Dave Saretsky of Cantriex, along with Keith Gregory of Cattleland Feedyards, partners in the Authentic Angus beef brand.
To add to the value of the product, the BIX platform was integrated with the Company’s trusted blockchain partner, Innoblock. This will enable beef to be sold in Hong Kong with a QR code that features the grade, harvest date, shipping date, arrival date, and other attributes. Test-market feedback from retailers was that the product quality and flavour, as well as the information on the product, were excellent. All the value chain participants have committed to continue to work together and expand the network and volume of Canadian premium beef exported to Asia using the BIX platform as its trusted value-add traceability and aggregated data source.
GBI President Jack Szeto said, “We are proud to work with TrustBIX in procuring customers and obtaining a traceable high-quality Canadian beef product to Asian markets, including Hong Kong and Taiwan.”
