Carrefour using Blockchain @Cryptovest

Carrefour, one of Europe’s largest retailers, is putting blockchain technology to use in its French operations, helping customers stay informed about the source of the food they purchase.

The food information revolution is here, and blockchain technology is the catalyst behind it, making it possible for shoppers in supermarkets to learn more about the products they purchase.

Carrefour, one of Europe’s largest retailers, has hopped on the blockchain train, announcing the implementation of this technology to provide more transparency about its supply chain.

The company said last week its blockchain solution would help grocery shoppers in France track the journey of their food, starting with chicken.

At their end, customers will be able to scan a product using their smartphones and find information such as where the chickens were raised, their diet, and the place the meat was handled.

By the end of this year, Carrefour will also include this feature for products like honey, cheese, and some vegetables.

This implementation of blockchain technology appears to be part of the plan by CEO Alexandre Bompard to increase sales, especially in organic food.
