" We know all the steps in the supply chain of our products, to ensure they are produced with respect for people, animals and the environment. And we want to show these steps to our clients as well, be open and transparent." - Marit van Egmont, Commercial Director of Albert Heijn

“You are building a halo effect - If I can trust Carrefour with this chicken, I can also trust Carrefour for their apples or cheese.” - Emmanuel Delerm, Carrefour’s blockchain project manager  

Consumer needs are evolving

Consumers are more conscious and care about the provenance of the products they buy. Blockchain brings full visibility in the process, contributing to a positive brand experience, more trust in the brand, and a stronger feeling of enagement. 

Supply processes are inefficient 

Typical challenges are visibility shortages, traceability breaches, no real time updates, paperwork.... Blockchain brings substantial savings on time and money through transparent and streamlined processes, better information sharing and forecasting, and reduced risk of mistakes.

Sustainability becomes a priority

Every company needs to rethink how they operate in the ecological, social and economic environment. Blockchain contributes to sustainability goals through auditable, non-disputable and transparent data to follow up on your key metrics.  

This minibook will bring you strategic insights and use cases that solve real business problems.

Customers expect a fully traceable and sustainable supply chain. Early adopters have already proven that these different models have a direct impact on revenue and cost optimization. You can save yourself a lot of time and frustration by incorporating the learnings of these early adopters into your blockchain supported digital transformation. Step one? Read this minibook.”
