Last October (2020) I presented during the Groundbreaker APAC virtual tour about countering food waste using Oracle Blockchain. The presentation can be viewed below.

Food waste is a global problem, affecting our economy, well-being and environment. Approximately 1/3 of food produced gets wasted, costing $1 trillion each year. The good news is that we can counter this problem using Oracle Blockchain Platform to improve a circular economy and prevent waste. In this talk I will highlight a big food contamination case that occurred in the Netherlands in 2017/2018, leading to major food waste of eggs, that could be prevented using the Oracle Blockchain Platform cloud.

In the presentation I go over the architecture of the platform, the capabilities of the platform and the sneak peak of the implementation using trusted nodes and smart contracts to securely track and trace food ingredients from source to consumer.

Also watch my interview talking over the content of the presentation with Javed Mohammed from Oracle.
