I Want Romaine in My Caesar Salad: Blockchain, Food Safety and Payment Process Evolution

In late 2018, you could only get kale in your Caesar Salad because of an E. coli outbreak in the romaine lettuce supply chain. Now, the Blockchain Food Safety Alliance is deploying blockchain technology to facilitate easier exchange of information to speed food safety investigations. Similarly, NACHA is creating new infrastructure and tools to facilitate an easier and secure way for parties to share financial information across a number of B2B and C2B processes. Working with leading edge technology partners, these integrated services herald a modern “corporate experience” to overcome legacy challenges for exchanging financial information, reducing fraud and improving internal controls.

You don’t need to register for the conference to attend the meeting, and guests, colleagues and clients are welcome.RSVP to business.payments.smb@mpls.frb.org by Monday, October 7.
