SB Webinar: Enhancing sustainability with blockchain A transformation story from the coffee industry

Between 2011 and 2018, the price of coffee in global markets dropped from nearly $2.80 a pound to $1.12 a pound, leading a number of coffee farmers to leave behind coffee cultivation. At the same time, it's predicted that by 2050, close to 50% of the world’s land used to produce high-quality coffee could be unproductive due to climate change. These numbers speak to the stark economic and environmental sustainability challenges that the coffee industry faces. In this webinar hear from Farmer Connect, an innovative company that is leveraging IBM Blockchain to change the equation.
