Ensuring honey is pure
CSIRO is researching how to use blockchain to ensure honey does not contain artificial substitutes. Testing has found that almost half the honey samples selected from supermarket shelves were ?adulterated?. This means they had been mixed with something other than the product from bees. The samples tested were all either wholly imported or blends of both imported and locally-produced honey. https://blog.csiro.au/is-your-honey-faking-it/

Fruit tattoos to replace plastic stickers
Tattoos on fruit are set to replace stickers as farmers seek out environmentally-friendly alternatives to plastic labels. Fruits with printed skins are already on supermarket shelves in Spain, Sweden, and the UK, but in Australia stickers, wax and plastic wrap are still the most common ways fresh produce is branded. Plastic labels are set to become a thing of the past, though, as farmers listen to consumer demand for less packaging. Among those pursuing alternatives is Rabbits Organics banana farm at Mena Creek in far-north Queensland. http://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/2017-09-14/tattooed-fruit-to-replace-stickers-and-plastic-packaging/8943938
