Product Description

Like it or not, blockchain is coming to your business—learn why & how


You may have heard about blockchain and its role in securing online and currency transactions. Now, the technology is being put to use by large food industry companies—think: Kroger, Unilever, Nestlé, and Dole—as they seek to secure their supply operations. Time to understand the basics, if not get on the bandwagon.

Learn about blockchain’s role in food safety systems from food safety specialist John Ryan in this webinar. Ryan will explain how this emerging technology could well change the industry, how you may soon encounter it, and why you might find it useful for your operations. After all, food safety and traceability standards are being forced down through the supply chain and aren’t going away.

After attending this illuminating session, you will know the basics of blockchain, the chain of custody, and what smart contracts are. You will also understand hyperledgers, who is using blockchain, and food provenance as a new way of looking at safety.

Get your head around this new technology. As too many companies have found out, those who can’t or won’t establish preventative food safety systems are eventually eliminated. Find out how blockchain can help you secure your supply.
