The supply chain from the farm to the consumer's kitchen table is becoming increasingly complex. Under the pressure of changing customer interests, increasing regulatory controls and growing global competition, the food and beverage industry is forced to create more transparency and gain more customer confidence.
They are increasingly interested in their food sources and want more individual products. These are just a few of the many factors driving the introduction of digital technologies in the industry. For example, the Internet of Things (IoT), Tracking & Tracing, Cloud and Edge Computing or the Blockchain.
Improving food safety and transparency They ensure better food safety, more flexibility and reliability in production and greater transparency in supply chains. In the event of recalls, they reduce effort and costs. MindSphere, Siemens' open cloud-based IoT platform, offers the perfect way to capture data across the entire supply chain.
Pre-built blockchain applications make it easy to set up tamper-proof tracking systems. They allow sensitive information to be stored behind closed doors, while other participants in the supply chain only have access to the data they need, which is sent to the blockchain via secure cloud gateways.
