Systech Announces Partnership with FarmaTrust to Deliver Foolproof Pharmaceutical Blockchain Solution

Revolutionary solution provides authentic, safe and connected products throughout the pharmaceutical supply chain

PRINCETON, New Jersey and LONDON, Sept. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Systech, a global technology leader in brand protection and product authentication, and FarmaTrust, a leader in pharmaceutical supply chain security, today announced their strategic partnership. This partnership provides a revolutionary blockchain-enabled solution for the pharmaceutical industry that leverages FarmaTrust's blockchain and AI technologies. The Systech platform will now provide a solution that goes beyond today's current compliance, traceability, anti-counterfeit and product safety solutions, enabling clients to ensure product authenticity from the manufacturing floor to a patient's hands.

The counterfeit drugs trade is thought to be the world's largest fraud market. The WHO estimates counterfeit drug revenue at around $200 billion, with an estimated 10-15 percent of worldwide pharmaceutical trade sold on the black market, internet and to patients via prescription medication.
