Nestle is looking to team up with blockchain platform OpenSC, to help provide it’s consumers with transparency and track their food back to its source. Nestle will run a pilot program that will trace milk from farms and producers in New Zealand to its factories in the Middle East. In a statement by the executive vice-president, Magdi Batato, Nestle is hoping to provide consumers with the ability to make an informed decision about what they eat and where it comes from. Nestle has piloted blockchain technology since 2017, but this partnership with OpenSC will be the first time consumers are able to trace their food using a blockchain platform back to the farm.
