'#Blockchain offers opportunities for a #sustainable and transparent #food chain'

Blockchain offers opportunities for efficiency, sustainable product range and cost reduction in the food chain. Companies that want to remain successful within the future food value chain are therefore well advised to explore the options for blockchain.

This is Rabobank's conclusion in the report 'Blockchain: The Trigger for Disruption in the Food Value Chain'. The report states that after implementation, blockchain can be used for cost reduction and for increasing the value of end products or raw materials by using the information about these products.
An example is meeting specific customer requirements with regard to the production method, origin and other quality characteristics.


Transparent food chain

The information provided by the blockchain can also benefit from the approach to food safety issues. "Retrieving products can be much easier if the entire chain is transparent," says Harry Smit, senior analyst - farming and farming inputs.
Transparency in the food chain also means that the reputational advantages of market leaders decrease. Confidence in a product is less dependent on trust in the supplier, but more of the information available in the blockchain, according to the report. This allows smaller companies to realize high prices on the basis of the intrinsic properties that they provide, without having to build up a reputation for many years.
The information from the blockchain can also be used in predictive models that can demonstrate correlations, links and risks.


Successful implementation

If blockchain is to be successfully implemented, then according to Smit, two conditions must first be met. "First of all, processes within companies and between companies must be digitized and standardized. Secondly, a broad participation of stakeholders throughout the value chain is necessary, otherwise the value of blockchain will be canceled. "

I'm interested in everything that has to do with sustainability. My house is solar powered and I have my own water supply and filtering system.  I grow my own vegetables and fruit. Most of the time I go on the road by bicycle and for long distances I use public transport.
