Getting Blockchain Ready : Three Conceptual Overhaul Suggestions

By Dr. Hans Maurer, New Zealand IFPS Director and chair of the Chain Information Management Committee

In my earlier comment piece entitled "Blockchain: myth or salvation?", I touched upon the need for a conceptual overhaul in the way our industry works to give Blockchain technology a chance to succeed. 

Three suggestions for such an overhaul are the need to accept GS1 standards as an integral part of product and grower identification; to settle upon an appropriate and consistent procurement strategy and then stick to it; and, to adopt the 7th Principle of Supply Chain Management (Anderson et al, 1997).

SMART Horticulture Asia and IFPS

The International Federation for Produce Standards (IFPS) teams up with Asia Fruit Logistica for the first-ever conference for Information Management, Standards & Technology for Asia’s fresh fruit and vegetable sector.

Information exchange is the basis for a safe, efficient, effective and durable supply chain of fresh produce. Supply chain information from farm to fork is the foundation of the international fresh produce industry. In this context, standards for food safety, product-identification (like PLU) and supply chain information management are essential.

To help shape the future of information exchange in fresh produce, the International Federation for Produce Standards (IFPS) is supporting ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA with the launch of SMART Horticulture Asia: a new, high-level, Asia-wide business forum that focuses on information management, standards, and technology. Within IFPS, trade, growers and standards associations representing the fresh produce industry in South America, North America, Europe and Oceania work together to develop and maintain product identification and chain information management standards for the global fresh produce industry.
