Blockchain

Today’s food supply has never been more complex – or under more pressure to deliver consumer and business confidence. But with blockchain and the Internet of Things, food companies and retailers are demonstrating how food supply participants can connect and share near real-time data with each other in a trusted, permissioned manner to improve food safety and supply chain efficiency. Learn how these two technologies are offering transformative supply chain and operational efficiencies by Golden State Foods and elevating food safety by Walmart at time when the world needs it most.
