IBM just launched its blockchain-based ledger that will track food supply chains.

IBM Food Trust Ledger

Known as IBM’s Food Trust Ledger, it will allow food retailers, suppliers and growers to see the supply chain in real-time. This will create better transparency and a way to trace food origin and safety of food. The last thing we need is unsafe lettuce again.

“There is no question that there is a strong public-health and business-case for enhanced food traceability.
