Cargill is investing its own digital engineering to aid the success and adoption of Hyperledger Grid. The latest project in Hyperledger’s portfolio of open-source frameworks and tools, Hyperledger Grid is created to accelerate development of blockchain and other digital solutions for the global food and agriculture supply chains.
“Hyperledger Grid is another way to help make food and agricultural supply chains more inclusive – creating new markets for farmers and developing economies,” said Keith Narr, vice president, Cargill Digital Labs. “With our wide set of food and agricultural supply chain data, Cargill is leading the industry to work together and improve traceability, trade, food safety, nutrition, farmer livelihoods and more.”
Hyperledger Grid provides an ecosystem of reusable, open-source digital tools that developers can work with to build products, prototypes and applications that address supply-chain use cases, including traceability, food safety, trade settlement and more. Hyperledger Grid builds upon Hyperledger Sawtooth, a project originally contributed to The Linux Foundation by Intel and maintained by Cargill, Bitwise IO, Intel and others.
Hyperledger Grid is receiving support from other companies including Bitwise IO and Intel – companies that, like Cargill, see its advantages for food and agricultural supply chains.
