Can new technologies enhance efficiencies in the food supply chain? Next week’s Lunch & Learn webinar will delve into how smart systems, such as blockchain and live sensors, can help agriculture meet the increasing demand for freshness, taste, nutrition, safety and sustainability in food.

On Tuesday, February 28, Ripe.io Co-Founder Raja Ramachandran will explore important considerations to enhance supply chain efficiency based on new digital technologies for food. Ripe.io is a start-up company that uses blockchain (ledger systems) and real time sensors (live sensors) to measure, record and share growing, transportation and storage conditions. The data gathered from these systems help growers and supply chain participants improve food sustainability, safety, nutrition and taste.

The webinar will discuss how these systems can lead to efficiencies in the supply chain, resulting in new revenue opportunities and reduced costs. Join us for this Lunch & Learn webinar to hear more about this topic, share your experiences and ask questions.
