Food Safety Disruptors - Emerging Technologies and the Baking Industry

Regulations and customer requirements are moving targets that cause greater complexity in defining what is considered successful food safety.  Emerging technologies like Blockchain and IoT solutions can help hold other departments and companies accountable, thus ensuring food safe product and ingredients.

Blockchain is a new and powerful tool for traceability.  Blockchain can be used for tracing specific batches as they move through the production process.  While it is currently used in the Produce and Seafood industries, it's use in bakeries and other grain based industries has not yet been proven.  Where does the technology currently stand and where is it heading?

How suitable is IoT for baking environments?  IoT is a proven means of providing real time data for immediate decision making.  IoT is simple, low cost, and provides immediate results that are useful across all departments.

Ultimately, these emerging technologies have the power to completely transform traditional Food Safety.
