Furthermore, by providing proof of origin, the solution allows Yolo officials, producers, and distributors to develop recognizable brands for locally produced, high-quality, tested and safe products.
“The customizable SICPATRACE solution, combined with SICPA’s local approach to training and on-site support throughout the implementation process, has allowed operators at 68 registered sites in Yolo County to tag more than 88,000 plants since March – providing local officials with far greater insight into cannabis products as they move through the supply chain,” said Alex Spelman, SICPA VP and director of business development.
The SICPATRACE solution combines counterfeit-resistant stamps, traceability and enforcement tools, and data management services, as well as ongoing support and training for the industry participants.
“The CalOrigin solution not only brings greater transparency to the supply chain, but will enable county officials and industry leaders to advance the Yolo County brands or appellations in the cannabis marketplace. With the SICPA proof of origin solution, California patients and consumers can fully verify the sourcing of Yolo-produced cannabis, validate testing results and see specific attributes of products such as sun-grown or ‘sustainably farmed’ certifications,” said Spelman.
