Blockchain and Wiise Chain, summit in Palermo on March 9, 2020

The summit will take place on 9.3.20 in Palermo 'Blockchain: everything you need to know', organized by Legacoop Sicilia in collaboration with the Palermo Enna Chamber of Commerce, STAL Food Science and Technology and Wiise Chain.

'Blockchain, everything you need to know'

Target of the event is to clarify the authentic meaning of a system of blockchain public and to analyze its application opportunities in a strategy to enhance the agri-food supply chains rooted in the territories. Also in the perspective of internationalization of quality productions, online and e offline.

La blockchain public - beyond the clamor imposed by the marketing of large consulting firms - is a digital notarization tool for material flows and the various phases of the supply chain. Once its technical meaning has been clarified, it is essential to focus on the processes, values ​​and objectives of the operators and supply chains that intend to consider its application.

An efficient and ethical supply chain can take advantage of this technology, provided you organize partnership effective across the agricultural, processing and distribution sectors, e share its values'from farm to fork'. In a path that must information, to involve and benefit the consumers themselves.

Traceability, value chain, sustainable development

Technology di blockchain public can first of all strengthen the traceability systems already adopted by food chain operators to comply with legal requirements. All the more so since the system is based on global standards (GS1) and accessible in real time to the social partners concerned. (1) The effectiveness of the system therefore depends on its'democratization', linked to the accessibility of costs and ease of use (interoperability with systems already in use).

Architecture of the system can be modulated, in relation to the objectives of operators and supply chains, by recording several categories of data. From country notebooks and analyzes (e.g. soils, water, seed genetics, input, agricultural and processed products), veterinary records and other relevant news on feed e important treatments for animal welfare. Ingredients and additives, food adjuvants and consumables, i MOCA, processing and transformation processes, distribution and management of returns.

La value chain it can be brought out, for the dual purpose of identifying areas for improvement and opportunities for rebalancing, and to show the significance of the prices of commodities that express a 'system' quality. Having regard to the various elements that characterize and guarantee the quality of agricultural raw materials, processes and products. But also to the commitment of each operator on the various fronts of sustainable and participatory development. That is to say towards ecosystems, workers and communities, consumers. (2) Without neglecting i advantages of the short supply chain.
