Recording: Transforming Global Food Supply with Blockchain, Mar 14, 2018


Brigid McDermott


IBM, in collaboration with many of the world's largest most innovative food suppliers and retailers (e.g., Walmart), has built a Food Safety solution with blockchain technology that will bring trust and transparency to suppliers, producers, retailers, regulators and consumers. Blockchain, a distributed shared ledger for recording transactions, will revolutionize the way the food industry can optimize the trading and shipping of food, trace contaminated items and reduce fraud and waste.
