“Tell me about my produce”
A Clear Intelligence / IBM Case Study
A retailer wants to allow their consumers to know where their products are sourced from, what the nutritional value is, and to connect the consumer to locally sourced products.
The Problem: Consumers are demanding more transparency from from the grocery stores about where there products come from and what the nutrional content is and potentially what dishes they can use products in.
The Solution: For large scale retailers we can leverage IBM Food trust. This will require multiple parties to be added into the network unless they are already part of it.
For others we can leverage a focused and custom built blockchain solution adapted to the specific needs of the retailer and distribution network to track product from farm to shelf. This will identify the source of key products and also allow the consumer to gain nutritional insights and using Chef Watson service also identify potential recipes based on consumer preferences and available ingredients.
Implementation of the solution is just the beginning. We remain engaged with your team in a collaborative effort to drive adoption and scale to extract the full value of the solution. With continuous improvement frameworks in place, we will ensure the solution continually evolves and drives increased value as the business changes. This is where the full ROI and competitive disruption is realized and, more importantly, maintained.
