Food Integrity Blockchained use case #1 on Organic Table Grapes from South Africa to AH (super market in the Netherlands) – Marieke de Ruyter de Wildt (AgriPlace) and Bob Klaase (VAA) presented the use case during the first Food Integrity Blockchained meet-up on Tuesday, July 4, 2017


Blockchain for Agriculture and Food

This report documents experiences and findings from the public private partnership (PPP) project ‘Blockchain for Agrifood’ that was started in March 2017. The project aims to contribute to a better understanding of the blockchain technology (BCT) and its implications for agrifood, especially how it can impact specific aspects of supply chains and what is needed to apply BCT in agrifood chains. A second aim of this project is to conceptualise and develop a proof of concept in an application based on a use case concerning table grapes from South Africa where BCT could be applied. This has been done by building a demonstrator that keeps track of different certificates involved in the table grapes supply chain. The code of this demonstrator is published at Github. Furthermore, the project explored issues regarding the relevance, applicability and implications of BCT for the agrifood sector through literature study and stakeholder consultation.


Blockchain for Agrifood a Proof-of-concept pilot

In this video we demonstrate the Proof-of-Concept application made within the project ‘Blockchain for agrifood’. This project is coordinated by WUR and TNO. And financed by the Dutch ministry of economic affairs and carried out in a public private partnership.
