OPEN FOOD CHAIN
The open secret in the agrifood industry is that it’s built on exploiting complicated supply chains that are behind all the products you find in your kitchen. This has resulted in exploitation of human labour, exploitation of animals, and exploitation of the planet. Poor practices in the food supply chain have real consequences for growers, businesses, and consumers, alike. At the same time, ethical businesses don’t get the recognition they deserve – especially if they fall somewhere in the beginning or middle of the supply chain.
Customers are becoming more data savvy. It simply isn’t enough to say your products are trustworthy – you have to prove it. In doing this you create the opportunity for an active relationship with customers while also having the option to secure your reputation and increase internal efficiency – all powered by blockchain.
Open Food Chain is a customisable blockchain solution that can tell a product story, manage ESG risks, and create more efficient supply chains. Empowering people and businesses with information is the first step. Transparency means they then have a CHOICE to stop supporting exploitation and START rewarding sustainable businesses.
