Reducing food waste in the Agri-Food Supply Chain using Blockchain and AI
Every year we waste 1.3 billion tons of food worldwide, which means one-third of the total food produced is wasted or lost every year.
On the other hand, more than 800 million people around the world do not have access to proper nutritious food.
Also, food waste contributes to almost 10% of global carbon emissions, thus, food waste is both a social and environmental issue.
However, as we move towards a technologically advanced world, we can utilize cutting-edge technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, cloud computing and many more to reduce food waste in different phases of the agri-food supply chain.
In this talk, we introduce FoodSQRBlock and SmartNoshWaste - two blockchain-based multi-layered frameworks in the food supply chain utilizing cloud computing, QR code and reinforcement learning to reduce food waste.
