Digital technology and online collaboration are all about trust. Especially in the food chain where many different stakeholders share information, often across borders. Technology such as blockchain can enable trust, but only if it’s provably reliable and if the digital registration matches the physical reality. Thus, the way we verify compliance is an important part of digital trust.
We’re proud to announce that Deloitte will host this track! As a major international accounting firm, Deloitte has a longstanding reputation for trust and compliance. On top of that, they have in-depth knowledge about blockchain and other new technologies. Together with companies in agriculture and certification providers like DNV GL, they’ll contribute to solving compliance issues with blockchain-based networks. DNV GL is a global leader in certifying management systems for companies across different industries, including food and beverage.
What types of compliance forms need to be in this blockchain-based network? Let’s sum it up. First of all, companies and governments need to be able to verify the authenticity of a digital certificate. Second, we must validate the origin of a product from retailer to farm. Third, we should be able to check the conditions of smart contracts and if they’re in line with legal agreements. During the final track, we’ll dive deep into the possibilities blockchain can have on making these systems functional.
