Case studies

Infant formula manufacturing origin

In 2023, Source Certain developed a program to demonstrate the ability of scientific provenance verification technology, TSW Trace®, to verify the origin and differentiate various brands and batches of commercially available infant formula.

Case studies

Protecting Australian Bravo™ apple brand

Source Certain commenced a pilot supply chain integrity program for WA Farm Direct (WFD), the licenced owner and original developer of boutique apple variety Bravo™ in 2021. The program has just been extended to cover all orchards across Australia.

Case studies

Provenance verification of Solomon Islands teak

Source Certain, in collaboration with World Forest ID (WFID), conducted a pilot program in late 2021 to determine how Trace Elements and Stable Isotopes could be applied as complementary techniques to further support other global WFID projects.  Kolombangara, Solomon Islands was selected as the location for the pilot project/demonstration across Teak from this region.

Case studies

Australian wild prawn integrity

Australia’s wild prawn industry is continuing its work with Source Certain for another four years, taking another step toward guaranteeing the integrity of Australian wild prawns and strengthening the market’s security.

Expert team, expert results.

The highly diverse expertise of our team enables provision of services to almost any client across private organisation or government sectors; from those involved in mining and exploration, to food regulators, producers and distributors, law enforcement agencies (domestically and internationally), consultants to the oil and gas industry as well as those pursuing academic endeavours.

The primary aim of this study was to establish a rapid, reliable and cost-effective screening test to verify the origin of coffee. Scientific technology, like TSW Trace can strengthen existing traceability and transparency measures that are currently in use within the coffee industry.

The sampling analysis reports were fascinating for us and easy to follow. They were clearly able to identify and verify the provenance of cherries to the orchard of origin.

We want consumers to have the confidence that when they buy Australian Wild Prawns, that's what they are getting. Working with the Source Certain team and the provenance technology, gives consumers the ability to trust our provenance claims and can also track our Australian wild prawns back to the fisheries where they were caught.

Annie Jarrett Chair Australian Council Prawn Fisheries (ACPF)

King River Resources is very happy with Source Certain’s performance on our project. From the conception of the project through to the commissioning of the Laboratory Scale Pilot Plant, Source Certain have been collaborative and continued to not just deliver the work but continually provided valuable contribution to ensure a successful outcome.
