Advantages of Connectivity Between Agricultural Growers and Processors
Advantages of Connectivity Between Agricultural Growers and Processors

Agriculture is rapidly changing, with more change anticipated. Government policies and regulations are demanding more of food distributors, who in turn are requiring more of agricultural growers and processors in the form of transparency of information and improved communications between parties, and higher product quality and greater accountability and traceability.

What does this mean for growers and processors today?

By beginning to adopt greater integration and communications between systems across organizations along with new, smarter methodologies, it is possible to automate processes, improve accuracy, reduce costs, eliminate redundancies and duplicated data entry, and reallocate human resources to higher and better functions. The result of this is significantly improved quality, productivity and profitability.

An example includes the ability to automate the scheduling of deliveries from the farm to the processor, to auto detect the physical location of incoming vehicles and auto-generate load tickets.

The global food chain is complex, bringing together farmers, warehousing, shipping companies, distributors, and retailers. And currently these types of organizations are using outmoded methods of record keeping and are only loosely tied together using inefficient manual processes and communications.

More and more information is being captured every day, and this information must be properly integrated and managed for analysis and real-time decision making. And systems and communications across organizations need to be integrated.

Food industry leaders are poised to revolutionize utilizing blockchain technology. This will bring about higher standards of food quality and greater health and safety for the public at large.

The agriculture blockchain will bring great value to consumers by improving the accuracy of their purchase decisions, and by potentially halting the spread of illness. By reading a QR code on a smart phone it will be possible to ascertain the entire supply chain of food products, including identification of the source farm and all parties involved in processing and distribution, and anything affecting the quality and safety of these food products.

“The World Health Organization estimates that nearly 1 in 10 people become ill every year from eating contaminated food, with 420,000 dying as a result. Food crime is a rising trend, and Arc-net points to national reports claiming 30 – 40 percent of the food we eat is either adulterated or mislabeled… and according to the TÜV SÜD Safety Gauge Food Segment Report, only 64 percent of companies say they can trace every component of their products through the supply chain. In a time dubbed the “era of transparency,” this is disconcerting to say the least...”*
