Session: Blockchain and Food Supply chain. It’s hard to do it right but that’s how you do it.

The real challenges in food supply chain and how to win them

Use of blockchain in the food supply chain poses a lot of challenges, but the harder to win are not the technical ones. Major adoption problems come from the customer itself and involve mentality change (or the lack thereof). Others are little experience on the technical side and tendency to take shortcuts. This leads to useless platforms based on so-called “private blockchains” that have no value, or applications that do not really enforce any kind of accountability. In order to be done right this job has to be done in a different way.

Learning outcomes:

  • Avoid many common application design mistakes.
  • Learn what to communicate to your client first.
  • How to spot a week competitor?
  • Fundamental elements to do this job right.
