ripe.io introduces blockchain, IoT and analytics technology for Tomatoes
ripe.io announced today a joint effort with The Cornucopia Project and Analog Devices, Inc. to reimagine the local food supply chain using it’s innovative software and technology stack including blockchain and IoT devices to identify, trace, establish quality and taste profiles of tomatoes. Coordinated through the Cornucopia Project, a non-profit agricultural education organization based in Peterborough, NH, the design and purpose of the collaboration is to expose students from ConVal Regional High School and local famers to innovative tools that can be used alongside existing farming practices enabling improvements in transparency, traceability and quality. The combination of blockchain and IoT devices facilitates accurate real-time monitoring and tracking of the conditions and movement of produce through the food supply chain.
