The post shows that an egg packet in one of the stores of a popular supermarket chain comes with VeChain’s traceability solution. Thanks to the VeChain tag, the user can view the entire story behind the eggs, and track the road they travelled, from the producer to the store’s shelf.

The Chinese branch of Walmart originally announced a partnership with VeChain about a year ago, in June 2019. The plan was to use VeChain’s tech to ensure and prove the authenticity of products that Walmart has for sale.

As many as 23 products were listed as attached to the popular project on the very same day the announcement was published. However, Walmart also revealed that it plans to step up the usage of this technology — evidence of which is already clear based on the new Twitter update.
