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.
