Supply Chain Management
We have built a beta project that traces ingredients from our source manufacturers to our processing plant to distribution to vendor. This beta addresses our capacity to improve supply chain transparency. The problems at this stage are what software platform is best to develop a enterprise side UI that we can roll out to our farm partners and processors that don't slow down there process and data funnels that aggregate the data collected into a UI for our enterprise side (for Journey Foods vendor partners) then onto the UI for our consumer base to access and engage with.
We are in need of blockchain developers to work with our data scientists in house to create scripts that we can begin to test out in small batch runs as we determine how we can scale and roll out our .io launch into a full interactive site.
We are a 2018 Innovation Awards nominee
We have used demo platforms with Evrythng
We are looking to set up a custom supply chain using smart contracts and ingredients from multiple sourcing locations. We would need to develop proprietary technology that we are able to iterate rapidly in house or in collaboration.
Early iterations will be built in house with consistent usability testing as well as optimization. Once we have a supply side ledger fully functional, we would roll it out for one product good first, then gradually build it into our other products. After we have proven that we are able to successfully parse out our hashes and PoWs without issue, we will do a soft launch with dummy SKUs to verify the process of creating the final nonce that the vendor would use to unlock all the SKUs for release. At this point, we would assess the viability of our ledger model and scale according to the most optimal ROI.
We at Journey Foods are a small team that aspires to create big change. We see ourselves as being a great pilot program to highlight how supply chain transparency and CPG's are a match made in heaven. We have the ability to R&D at a rate that is not possible for a larger company. Our reliance on tech and data across the full spectrum of business practices makes us natural innovators. We are moving forward with this launch regardless and would love to partner with Origin Trail because of their high level knowledge and capacity in this specific field.
