600 million people – almost every tenth in the world – fall ill every year with contaminated food, 420,000 of them die (cf. World Health Organization 2019). The main reason for this are supply chains that can not be properly traced back to the source of the contamination (cf. Yiannas 2018). Experts say that the blockchain technology is capable of reducing these numbers drastically by increasing traceability in the supply chain. That’s why we wanted to take a closer look at the implementation and benefits of blockchain technology in supply chain management. We decided to build a prototype of an app using ethereum blockchain.
