Blockchain is revolutionizing the way we do business - redefining the way we transact, share information and interact with the world. The impact of this new technology is far reaching and expected to reshape virtually every industry in the next decade. Blockchain allows a transfer of assets throughout a supply chain without an intermediary on a cloud based network which enables participating retailers, suppliers, growers and food industry providers to see supply chain data in near real time. For the Food and Beverage industry that means greater traceability, transparency and efficiency in the supply chain - all leading to increased profitability among food suppliers and reduced cost for the consumer.
