Provenance science company Source Certain has released its latest origin verification program, this time specifically designed the coffee industry. The product addresses the critical need within the industry for a fast and evidence-based solution to validate country-of-origin claims associated with whole or ground beans.

Designed to meet the demands of importers, retailers, coffee traders and roasters, the program employs advanced scientific techniques to verify the country-of-origin claim associated with coffee beans. The program covers all Robusta and Arabica coffee bean varieties of single-origin, and is applicable to raw and roasted beans, ground coffee, and pod coffee.

The analysis is conducted at Source Certain's state-of-the-art laboratory in Perth, Western Australia, by a team of scientists specialising in provenance science. The process is fast and simple, enabling clients to verify crucial information required to proceed with a transaction or rectify an incorrect origin claim.

The program leverages Source Certain's expertly curated databases and scientific origin verification technology, TSW Trace, which integrates 40 years of research and application. Source Certain has successful and ongoing origin verification programs within many industries including Australian seafood, horticulture, and agriculture and is a global pioneer in scientific provenance verification.
