Blockchain in Agri-Food – Industry Adoption Analysis


Published on

With the ability to track every movement of food – from the farm to the customer’s basket – blockchain has the power to address numerous challenges plaguing the agri-food industry such as waste management, food fraud, and the lack of price transparency. So it stands to reason that tech firms, both startups and behemoths, are working towards transforming this age-old industry with innovative blockchain-enabled solutions and business models. With a steady stream of projects being undertaken across food farming, processing, transportation and distribution, this report looks under the hood to find answers to key questions, such as:

• What does the value chain of blockchain enabled solutions supporting the agri-food industry consist?
• How do major blockchain companies fit in the value chain and how they collaborate with each other to meet various blockchain-enabled solutions in agri-food?
• What is the state of blockchain adoption across global regions and various sectors in the industry?
• What has been the outcome of real-world blockchain implementations, including pilot projects?
• How does the startup landscape look like?
• What does the future of blockchain in the agri-food industry look like?
