What is IBM Food Trust?

For the first time in history, we have the power to know everything about our food. So let's see what that power can do.

Welcome to IBM Food Trust™, the collaborative network of growers, processors, wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers, retailers and others enhancing visibility and accountability in each step of the food supply. Powered by the IBM Blockchain Platform, IBM Food Trust directly connects participants through a permissioned, permanent and shared record of food origin details, processing data, shipping details and more.
