Advancing food safety in Asian markets is the mission of our NGO, GFSF (www.globalfoodsafetyforum.org) . We’re focusing on new tracing technologies with blockchain front and center. Blockchain secures provenance and product information for suppliers, buyers, and regulators. It allows companies to track unsafe products and to track where the products have been distributed. There’s a net gain for human health, commercial efficiencies, and lower recalls and cargo refusals. The net gain for suppliers is lower financing costs, product liabilities, and protection of the brand. GFSF has an upcoming blockchain event in Beijing and in 2020, we’ll be hosting workshops to assist companies as blockchain technology has become a default verification tool for suppliers, international buyers, and surveillance and regulatory agencies worldwide.
