IBM is also working with services and technology providers to contribute important supply chain, provenance, testing, and sensor data to its blockchain ecosystem. These companies, including Trellis, Centricity, and 3M, are providing hardware and software, data, and services to enable users to write transaction data onto the blockchain network.
“IBM Food Trust is bringing a new level of transparency to the food ecosystem,” says the IBM representative. “It is allowing more collaborative transactions, so that organizations that once competed can now work together on the same network to build efficiencies, achieve compliance, and reduce costs. This can help the industry improve on key metrics such as food safety, freshness, quality and more.”
