Hyperledger showcases Walmart food traceability, safety efforts

Blockchain consortium Hyperledger has published a case study detailing how Walmart is “leading unparalleled transparency in the food supply chain”.

The retailer tested many approaches before turning its attention to blockchain. Two Proof of Concept (POC) projects, one in the US and one in China, solidified its commitment to the technology and Hyperledger Fabric. It is now leading industry-wide adoption with a coalition involving the likes of Nestle and Unilever.

Check out the case study here. It includes a step-by-step account of Walmart’s roll-out, from embracing the general idea of blockchain to selecting a core technology to planning the POC projects and taking the system global with partners. It also features tips from Frank Yiannas, former Vice President of Food Safety at Walmart, on rolling out an enterprise blockchain project.
