NFC-enabled sticker for verifying the provenance and authenticity of Johnnie Walker , Hennessy, Terrazas and Moet & Chandon bottles by simply scanning them with a smartphone
San Marino And Las Vegas , CA /PRNewswire/ - As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic slowly wear off, many countries are seeing a strong upswing in consumer demand, particularly for high-end luxury goods. During this boom, the shortcomings of traditional logistics models have become more apparent than ever, and cases of fraud have skyrocketed, particularly in developing countries.
VeChainThor, the world's leading enterprise-class public blockchain, is purpose-built to fix trust gaps in data. Blockchain creates a level playing field where each party can independently verify the claims of another, eliminating the need for intermediaries.
For manufacturers and importers of luxury goods, digital technologies that can guarantee the origin, logistical route and legitimacy of a product offer a real opportunity. It is therefore not surprising that the acceptance rate of digital tools such as the blockchain is increasing rapidly.
A digital future
Attwood Import Export, known to be the largest importer and distributor of premium alcoholic beverages in Cambodia, recently announced the launch of a novel security sticker based on the VeChainThor blockchain: the NFC-enabled "Attwood Blockchain Sticker" (ABS).
David Wang , Managing Director of VeChain Tech SEA, attended the launch celebration on July 27, 2022, which also featured major Cambodian news channels and was broadcast on CTV8 Cambodia .
Attwood Import Export is a leading company that has been exclusively importing and distributing luxury brands for almost 30 years, notably Johnnie Walker , Hennessy, Moet & Chandon, Terrazas, Chandon Sparkling, Budweiser Beer, Corona Beer and Coronita Beer.

This prevents fraud and protects consumers.
