The social start-up True-code.org was founded for traders and cooperatives to identify their supply chain facilities for free, hide vulnerable business assets and deliver verified facts to measure progress on positive impact, for example on CO2 reduction, deforestation and living wages. Suppliers can demonstrate their willingness to deliver transparency and compliance, while respecting their need to guarantee privacy of actors in the supply chain.
Certification bodies, standard owners and legislators can use the True-code to validate data that is part of the True-code facility passport against audit reports, or for example to verify that sustainability premiums are paid as agreed.
Producers, producer organizations such as cooperatives and their member/associates, understand that sharing information on farming practices is valuable for buyers. However, they want to protect individual smallholders’ privacy. This is able with the True-code.org.
Without sharing private details of their producing locations or suppliers, (commodity) traders are able to demonstrate if a product is high-risk with the Zero Knowledge Proof questions and answers. In this way, traders can for example show that the product is deforestation and conversion free.
Retailers and manufacturers who have committed to ESG and due diligence legislation, need answers from suppliers about risks and impact connected to their products. Find out if your product comes from a high-risk area and/or if the producers comply with requirements through the True-code.org.
Yes, it is! We promise you this:
The True-code.org is free to use for every actor in the supply chain. Registration for a True-code.org number is simple, and with a generator account suppliers can create or import a list of their facilities free-of-charge where private fields are hashed.
All private fields are hashed through our system and are unreadable for humans. The only public fields are: UUID number, country, product category and activity.
Create more transparency downstream and upstream in your supply chain, by giving suppliers the option to share verified answers through the True-code.org system.
True-code.org was founded for traders and cooperatives to identify their supply chain facilities for free, hide vulnerable business assets and deliver verified facts to measure progress on positive impact, for example on CO2 reduction, deforestation and living wages. Suppliers can demonstrate their willingness to deliver transparency and compliance, while respecting their need to guarantee privacy of actors in the supply chain.
We are taking action to create end-to-end transparency by offering three key services: free facility passports for smallholders and other supply chain actors, automated access to all existing verified safety and sustainability databases, and an interface that protects commercially sensitive information.
The technology is especially interesting for retailers who have committed to deforestation pledges, need (verified) answers from commodity traders and or cooperatives that are not willing and/or able to share the private details of their business partners. True-code.org allows traders and/or cooperatives to demonstrate their willingness to deliver transparency, while respecting their need for privacy.
The True-Code.org is free to use, because we believe that only then real transparency in end-to-end value chains can be reached.
No, right now it has only been tested in the food industry but can be applied in the whole FMCG market.
The True-code.org is available for everyone in the supply chain. It mainly was founded for traders and cooperatives, to identify their supply chain facilities and deliver verified facts for free while hiding vulnerable business assets.
