It is quite challenging to keep up with the “digital revolution”, which seems to be moving at an increasingly fast rate. One of the main challenges that we face is the different pace that we, the manufacturers, our customers and our suppliers are progressing on this path. Being based in Dubai, we source from all over the world and supply to local, regional and global customers. Our customers could be quite advanced in their technology and demand the same from their suppliers, as we do as manufacturers. But our suppliers in other parts of the world are still at a different place in the technology chain. This makes us not able to satisfy our customers’ demand from the beginning until the end, such as with blockchain technology.
Blockchain technology eventually might help us greatly with the food provenance and food sustainability, so that we would consume better with less waste and cost.
