SupplySide West podcast: Increasing transparency with forward-thinking technology

Using blockchain and mobile phone apps to connect the supply chain from farmer to consumer

October 30, 2018

The supply chain for botanical ingredients used in dietary supplements is uniquely complex due to harvesting variations and finite resources, yet consumers—and law makers—are increasingly demanding sourcing transparency. DreamWeaver, a technology solutions company, along with botanical experts including Trish Flaster, executive director, Botanical Liaisons, developed a path that may help brands track their supply chain. In this podcast, Trinanjan (TJ) Gupta, founder and managing partner, DreamWeaver; Flaster; and Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, discuss botanical supply chains and ways technology is helping streamline information. They cover:

  • How blockchain technology is helping shape the future of supply chain management

  • Why a lack of standardization of dietary ingredients poses threats for transparency

  • How the TagOne@FarmtoAisle app is connecting the supply chain from farmers to processors, manufacturers, retailers and consumers
