The food supply chain provides some of the strongest blockchain examples in the market today.

This can include tracking fruits & vegetables for safety purposes – making it easier to isolate contaminated foods. It can also include tracking wine & spirits for authenticity, reducing counterfeit goods and ensuring customers get what they paid for. This panel will discuss: What are the use cases that are most evolved in the agricultural industry today? How is blockchain changing partnerships & supplier/customer relationships through consortia? Why is blockchain a better solution than other technologies? What issues do players in the agricultural industry need to overcome to participate effectively in blockchain-based solutions?
