Ripe.io which uses blockchain and similar distributed ledger technology to track foods through the supply chain has announced a partnership with FlavorWiki. FlavorWiki has a digital app for consumers to evaluate taste. The partnership is intended to enable consumers to find out how their products taste throughout production and the supply chain, with the initial focus being on fruit and vegetables. David Protz, CEO of FlavorWiki stated that the partnership is there to solve a major issue in agriculture surrounding the lack of consistency, and blockchain allows the information created to me useful as it contains a lot of traceable info.
