‘What is Blockchain and what could be it’s potential for use within the food industry?’
Led by Will Smith – Client Manager – NSF International
Technology is increasingly contributing towards food’s journey from farm to fork with the food industry being a crucial link in that process. Competitiveness amongst food industry enterprises is closely linked to their ability to implement new technologies.
Blockchain technology creates a shared, distributed ledger of transactions over a decentralized peer-to-peer network. In the food industry, this is especially valuable as it makes it possible to track the source of various food items from raw ingredients to finished product.
In this session we will discuss: What is Blockchain, what are the potential uses for it in the food industry & how could such technology be implemented?
Keeping up-to-date with selected news, views and solutions on the latest food industry trends and hot topics is paramount for those working in the food industry, whether you are a leading retailer, advisory consultant or technical manager.
