Blockchain Based Food Tracking with IBM
« on: November 08, 2018, 07:46:33 AM »
The first company which became a part of this collaboration was none other that Walmart. Walmart utilized this platform in 2016 to recall food that received customer complaints.

The technology has already been adopted by some of the biggest names in the food industry including the French retail giant Carrefour, cooperatives Topco Associates and Wakefern and also BeefChain, Dennick Fruit Source and Smithfield.

IBMÂ’s original plan with the Food Trust network was focused on food safety. It has now encapsulated food wastage, efficiency, and analytics. This is done with the help of big data, automation and the Internet of Things (IoT).
