The Blockchain in Agriculture and Food Supply Chain Market is driven by factors such as an increase in demand for supply chain transparency, the rise in cases of food fraud in the emerging economies of the Asia Pacific, and growth in concerns toward food wastage.
According to the Congressional Research Service, as of 2014, food fraud cases had cost the global food industry an estimated USD 10.0 billion to USD 15.0 billion, annually. According to the World Health Organization estimates, in October 2017, about one in every 10-people become ill every year by eating contaminated food; about 420,000 people die every year, resulting in the loss of 33 million healthy life years. Nowadays, the global food supply has grown so complex that it has become difficult for food manufacturers and retailers to guarantee the provenance of their products. The food fraud cases in the past, including the horsemeat scandal of the UK in 2013 and pork mislabeling debacle in China in 2011, have affected the trust of consumers in these products and their manufacturers. Hence, companies are investing in blockchain technology, which would enable them to provide their customers with transparency.
