Walmart has announced in their blog post that they are going to implementing the blockchain for tracking the Leafy Greens. Leafy greens asking them to trace their products all the way back to the farm using blockchain technology. Suppliers are expected to have all these systems in place by this time next year.

In the Walmart, blog while health officials at the Centers for Disease Control told Americans have already warned citizens to avoid eating lettuce grown in Yuma, Arizona, it’s near impossible for consumers to know where their greens are coming from.

On one hand, this could be a great system for reducing waste. Earlier this year, greengrocers had to throw away produce thought to be infected with E. Coli.

The announcement states, “Health officials at the Centers for Disease Control told Americans to avoid eating lettuce that was grown in Yuma, Arizona”

However, it’s near impossible for consumers to know where their lettuce was grown.

It would seem that most producers and suppliers still rely on paper-based ledgers. As a result, tracking down vital information about where a product came from can be very time to consume.

Hopefully, the greater transparency will also make farms take further health and safety precautions. Now that any indiscretions can be quickly traced directly back to them.
