This webinar will discuss how blockchain will impact the food industry and how the likely food safety and quality inputs to this invoicing system are likely to determine your company's financial future.

Various concepts will be described such as chain of custody, smart contracts, Hyperledger. Know how your company will be impacted and how to Prepare to fulfill input requirements.

Why should you Attend

Rest assured, blockchain is in your future. And, this trend has NOTHING to do with Bitcoin.

"Block Chain is believed to be the next big technological disruption that would impact multiple industries including food safety and logistics. The nature of the logistics business demands that the LSPs (Logistics Service Providers) coordinate with multiple parties in the ecosystem including Shippers, Consignee, Carriers, Infrastructure Service Providers, Equipment Service Providers for successful movement of goods." A blockchain for business is a private, permissioned network with known identities and without the need for cryptocurrencies.

Attend this webinar to understand how a basic invoice level blockchain can be used to build an integrated food safety system (IFFS) that requires supply chain players to meet contractual business and food safety requirements in order to establish a financially based chain of custody system.

How Inputs to this new traceability initiative allow for payers to designate and comply with multiple contractual requirements from the farm through transportation, distribution, processing, packing and into customers. Virtually all players are captured.

You will learn how risk levels and probable supply chain failure points can be calculated in the event of recalls, and how fast traceability can be accomplished to put a lid on the expansion of recall impact.
