Dole is working to improve the speed so that they can identify problem spots in the supply chain and they are highly determined to improve food safety by 2025.
In a bid to food traceability
As per their thought, distributed data will make investigations faster and make consumers more aware. What Dole has been doing with its salad and fresh vegetable supply chain is they in the long run retreat the curtain on its supply chain with scannable vegetable packages that discloses the backdrop of the product.
To make sure, different retailers cannot see the company’s competitors’ data, they built protections into its platform. According to the intension of the company, Dole is soon expected to launch blockchain systems for other products.
