Blockchain is opening up a new world of possibilities to track our food and make it safer, better, and more sustainable. IBM, Coop, and Seeds&Chips are launching a call for ideas using blockchain to develop solutions for the egg supply chain.

What we offer:

Coop Italia and IBM will jointly evaluate each project received based on the relevance and feasibility of the proposal. The winner will be eligible to implement a 6-month Proof Of Concept (PoC) to verify feasibility and sustainability of their project in the field.

Coop will provide the following:

● a controlled supply chain for the production of "tal quali" eggs, including all relevant stakeholders
● the necessary resources of the Quality Management and Information Systems departments to support the implementation of the POC.

IBM will provide the following:

● The opportunity to use the totality of services contained within the IBM Cloud including Watson IoT, Blockchain and Cognitive Computing with a $10,000 monthly cr...

The challenge of securing a global commodity and developing viable systems for cultivating, monitoring, distributing this staple of our diet is imperative, and we need your help to make it better. What came first, the chicken or the egg? You tell us!

What we’re looking for:

We are interested in solutions that can gather information from throughout the production chain and implement blockchain into the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) that Coop is currently developing, with a specific focus on:

1. Digitizing data collection in the field to minimize the burden of manual insertion and updating of information related to supply chain steps
2. Identifying effective ways of standardizing information related to the various steps of the supply chain
3. Articulating the advantages of blockchain to build an effective and efficient traceability system
4. Finding ways to involve and engage the consumer through awareness of the traceability of the supply chain, in order to effectively communicate the values upon which Coop was founded.
