Albert Heijn supermarkets and drinks bottler have now decided to make their product chains transparent with the help of blockchain technology.
Gisela ten Kate: “This is a good step forward in the area of transparency – setting a good example for other supermarkets. We hope that this will lead to real progress for fruit growers and orange pickers.”
