FIB use case 18: Fortified Seeds Africa

Fortified Seeds in Africa was selected as a use case that would be followed across numerous meet-ups. The starting point is the notion that more trust in value chains is needed to let biofortification come to full fruition in low income countries.

The premise of the Foof Integrity Blockchained meetups organized by the New Fork and held in Amsterdam is that “Blockchain technology provides exciting new opportunities to create integer food systems”. During the meet-ups particiapants explore this new space together.

Food Integrity Blockchained Meet-ups

https://www.meetup.com/Blockchainfood

Blockchain technology provides exciting new opportunities to create integer food systems. Let’s explore this new space together. Welcome to the network of Food Integrity Blockchained!

Objective

We learn how blockchain can – and cannot – accelerate food integrity by

• Bringing people together from food companies, farmers, developers, regulators etc

• Learning from new use cases in food

• Running our own blockchain experiments with our adopted case: AgUnity

Meet offline

We meet in Amsterdam every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 18:30 and post a youtube summary of the event

What is new, is that we offer blockchain basics prior to the meetup. We don’t want ‘blockchain tourists’, people not really interested in the meaning of this technology for food, but we welcome blockchain newbees. In one hour, we help you to understand some basics. https://goo.gl/m6YH1S ;
