Event description

Description

Where does our food come from? Headlines of E.Coli outbreaks and food fraud are highlighting the need for more transparent supply chains in order to guarantee that the food that we eat is safe. Luckily, there are Australian AgTech companies coming to the rescue by developing solutions that will restore food transparency, providing consumers with choice and certainty.

Sheda, Nifty Grants and Wrays invite you to attend an exclusive discussion on food safety and provenance. Together with our industry experts, we will explore how the Australian agribusiness sector can build supply chains that allow us to understand where our food is coming from and the pathways taken to move from paddock to plate. In particular, we will explore the use of Blockchain and Internet of Things technology to track and analyse produce and food.

Drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
