Singapore-based tech company DiMuto has its first customer in the U.S., with citrus company Fancher Creek Packing using its Track & Trace blockchain technology.

Fancher Creek will use the DiMuto technology at its Visalia, Calif., packinghouse to tag oranges, lemons and grapefruit packed for export markets, helping the company ship more to Southeast Asian markets, according to a news release.

The use of the blockchain technology will help Fancher Creek find buyers in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, according to the release.

Each piece of fruit is tagged with a quick-response code, photographed and tracked throughout the supply chain for end-to-end visibility, according to the release, with verified documents shared on a single platform.

“The adoption of our technology by more players across the global produce industry underscores the scalability of our all-in-one trade management platform,” Gary Loh, DiMuto founder and chairman said in the release.

“It is platform-agnostic and interoperable among the different blockchain systems currently used by the big international retailers, and we envisage a faster rate of market adoption for our trade solution as retailers are increasingly requesting for suppliers to go on the blockchain to complete end-to-end traceability," he said in the release.
