Software solutions for food traceability have proliferated in recent years, particularly since 2015 when the U.S. finalized the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Given that stakeholders along the supply chain inevitably adopt software from different vendors, this greatly inhibits end-to-end visibility. Moreover, moving toward standardized data systems and structures (i.e., having everyone "speak the same language") is challenging. Four different providers of food traceability software recently came together to combat these challenges: FoodLogiQ, ripe.io, IBM, and SAP. The latter three leverage blockchain, while FoodLogiQ does not.
