Visibility in Organic Supply Chains
Author: Carrie Love
At the end of September, Holly Sobocinski and I traveled to Philadelphia to attend Natural Products Expo East. There are so many things to cover but first Philadelphia. What a city! It did not disappoint. We walked everywhere and ate some delicious food. Our AirBnB was located in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood — I will definitely visit the City of Brotherly Love again.
While at Expo East, I was able to attend the breakout session: “Building a Regenerative Supply Chain” moderated by Elizabeth Candelario of Mad Agriculture. Joining Elizabeth on the stage were Graham Kerwin of Timeless Seeds, Alex Heilman also of Mad Agriculture and Nate Powell-Palm of Cold Springs Organics. The group and audience discussed the challenges of visibility and traceability within the organic supply chain as well as the importance of every participant upholding the integrity of the organic product. I was able to meet leaders in organic farming and heard about challenges they face moving their organic product. MustDeliver’s technology is well positioned to help drivers and farmers with the visibility of the organic supply chain. Being from Northern Maine and having picked potatoes throughout my childhood, the thought that MustDeliver’s technology can be helpful for both drivers and farmers is above and beyond what I could have hoped. MustDeliver is excited to help make the organic supply chain more transparent and create free tech tools to help organize the efforts.
