Last week, CoinDesk reported that the technology arm of Chinese web insurer ZhongAn was developing a blockchain platform.

Not for insurance, though, as you might expect. This one will help track the provenance of chicken.

While this marks a first for the Chinese company (partially owned by Alibaba, Tencent and insurance giant Ping An), the launch will join a growing list of blockchain projects aimed at improving China's food safety record.

Over the past few years, the country has been hit by a series of scandals involving contaminated produce and supply chain fraud, and initiatives to improve the industry's reputation are emerging from a broad range of public and private entities.

This particular project, though, is especially intriguing, not only for its potential impact on agriculture, but also because of its timing.
