Speech:

In Food We Trust – consumers global food traceability blockchain platform

Blockchain offers us the opportunity to bring food traceability to consumers and to take massive costs out of our supply chains, but for companies to do it alone, chance for success is limited. In many talks we identified the government as the key pillar for success / failure of those initiatives and hence engaged with them to find a common solution. In times when things are VUCA, we engaged with external funding parties to put this initiative to live. In the presentation I will share our situation when we started, learnings and make a recommendation for digital innovation capabilities regarding blockchain & external funding options for any company to be aware of.
