Use blockchain to improve efficiency and transparency in a coffee bean supply chain

I get a lot of queries on what IBM is doing with blockchain for Supply Chain. There are many use cases and this one is dead on; similar to the use case I outlined in my original post “The future of eCommerce is with blockchain“, tracking products from farm to market will be the new standard for consumable goods. Integrating this technology into an eCommerce website and order management system will be necessary in order to take full advantage of transparency, transactions, and ownership; empowering the shopper to make the best decisions on purchase.

If you could track exactly where consumable products you shop for come from and how long they have been in transit, would you?

Join this webinar on January 8th and see the developer code pattern used to create a blockchain application for a coffee retailer.

  1. Great post Bob. It’s always exciting to be able to see a Blockchain solution for Supply Chain use case. I have no doubt the IBM blockchain will add lot of value to Supply Chain organizations (e.g. Wallmart). Looking forward to attending this webinar.
