The Supima blockchain platform powered by TextileGenesis™ will digitally connect Supima’s comprehensive supply chain from the growers to the brand/retailers. Integrated with this digital platform, Supima’s technology partner Oritain™ will provide the forensic origin authentication for Supima cotton across the platform. The ability to independently validate the Supima content of products at every stage of the supply chain achieves unmatched authenticity and responsibility through the combination of forensic physical and digital authentication.

Since it was founded in 1954, SUPIMA® has been referred to as the “world’s finest cottons.” Today marks the next chapter in Supima’s ongoing leadership role in bringing the most trusted and robust verification solution to authentic premium fiber sourcing to the global fashion industry. SUPIMA® is fortunate to partner with brands and retailers that are leaders in transparency and responsible sourcing. This ground-breaking supply chain traceability platform will provide an underlying mechanism to collaborate with the partners in a transparent, and verifiable way.

TextileGenesis’ Fibercoin™ technology will be integrated into Supima’s licensing program and applied to all SUPIMA® branded fiber throughout the supply chain, creating a non-fungible digital token for every kilogram of Supima cotton that can be physically and forensically verified and authenticated by Supima from the farm through to the retail shelf. This pioneering effort for cotton sourcing sets a new standard for responsibility in the global textile industry and consumer marketplace. Supima is striving to bring deeper levels of authenticity and responsibility to cotton sourcing with greater support for equity and ubiquity for all partners in the supply chain.

“The Supima partnership with TextileGenesis provides for the very first time, undisputable proof of origin for consumer products all the way back to the fiber’s origin. This enables Supima’s partner brands to credibly claim advantages in terms of product quality and sustainability that are independently verifiable through both digital and forensic testing. There is no system like this for any other fiber. SUPIMA® partners will have the most authentic and trustworthy premium cotton source for all the current and future needs of luxury apparel and home textile products,” says Marc Lewkowitz, President and CEO of Supima.

“This collaboration is setting a new benchmark for the cotton and premium fiber’s industry, and paves a new path for the entire fashion eco-system. We are creatively combining three major innovations - digital-tokens based article-level traceability, forensic physical verification, and Supima brand-licensing - in a single integrated platform. It creates a new platinum standard in the industry for end-to-end traceability and physical verification,” says Amit Gautam, Founder and CEO of TextileGenesis.

EPPA : New Study Shows That Making Reusable Containers for Takeaway Obligatory Will Undermine the EU’s Environmental Goals27.6.2022 06:00:00 CEST | Press release

Obligatory reusable packaging in takeaway services would be more burdensome for the environment than continuing to use single-use paper-based packaging. This is the conclusion of a new meta-study assessment, commissioned by the European Paper Packaging Alliance and carried out by renowned engineering consultancy, Ramboll. As the European Commission prepares to propose a revision of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (PPWD) with potentially far-reaching implications, the analysis, which examined 26 scientific studies, shows that reuse systems impose exclusive additional burdens to the environment when compared to single-use, related to additional washing, take-back transportation and breakage / unit loss associated with takeaway. The results show that Climate Change is by far the most affected impact category when implementing reuse in take-away services, and that reusable tableware can also have a significant impact on water use. Commenting on the meta-study assessment, Eric L
