All participants in health and food industry could apply by using API, apps to track products and having easy access to all the docs and certificates. The blockchain networks include both suppliers and retailers.
Walmart announced the intention to adopt it, further food suppliers and retailers such as Nestle and Kroger signalled their intention to collaborate too.

Blockchain technologies could “Uberize” the Hospitality food industry by eliminating middlemen and lowering transaction fees. This can lead to fairer pricing and even help smaller outfits desperate to get more market attention.

I like your idea of improving and streamlining the hospitality food industry, something that I didn't realize could lead to fairer pricing and help the small outfits. Thanks. - Gary 49 months ago
