Food Provenance with Blockchain
DLT is a solution for food provenance challenges because it enables actors to work together in a trustless environment. There has become a disparity between the production of the produce and the information that is on the packaging; for example, Pret a Manger claimed natural sandwiches but were caught including e-numbers in their bread . Consequently, producers in the food provenance supply chain process require a solution that increases transparency between producers and consumers. By using DLT, producers are able to authenticate their produce and consumers are able to access immutable data to validate the claims on packaging or labels.
