Major Headlines

 

U.S. Dairy To Be Tracked On Blockchain

 

The Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) is a U.S. cooperative owned by dairy farm families. The group will now be testing blockchain technology for the dairy supply chain. This method is clearly beneficial, as seen by the adoption of major corporations like Walmart, and governments such as that of the UK using blockchain to track agricultural products as well. Specifically, the DFA partnered with ripe.io to transform the food supply chain for data transparency, so consumers can be confident in their food from farm to home. Through the pilot project, DFA is hoping to increase supply chain transparency and better connect our farmer owners with customers. David Darr, Vice President Sustainability and Member Services at DFA: “Consumers today want to know where their food comes from and blockchain technology, like ripe.io, gives consumers real-time data, which can really help increase trust and confidence about food production from start to finish.”
