At this year’s Smart Kitchen Summit, Mike Lee of the Future Market said that personalized data profiles are a huge unmet opportunity in food.
I agree with Mike, and the more I’ve thought about it, the more I see blockchain as being pretty critical to the creation of secure, decentralized data profiles. But, of course, this is only one potential use case for blockchain, which is getting a strong look as calls for greater transparency and security across the food value chain become louder.
And so when I was at the Internet of Food conference last month, I was intrigued by many of the things folks like Raja Ramachandran, the CEO of Ripe.io, had to say. Ramachandran and his company are building a blockchain for food, so I decided to ask him to come on the podcast and talk about the future of blockchain within the food ecosystem.
