IBM Food Trust™

IBM Food Trust™ uses blockchain technology to create unprecedented visibility and accountability in the food supply. It’s the only network of its kind to connect growers, processors, distributors, and retailers through a permissioned, permanent and shared record of food system data.” The new Walmart Food Traceability Initiative directs suppliers to start collecting information (such as field locations and harvest times) and uploading it to the IBM Food Trust Network by Jan. 31, 2019. Suppliers that source the produce from third parties have until the end of September 2019 to draw those partners into the initiative.
