The Story of Tomatoes from Vine to Pizza Sauce using Blockchain, IoT and Edge Computing
Land into the future of Story-telling with a Transparent Pizza where you would be able to verifiably see if a tomato is organic, where it was planted, when it was harvested, how it was transported, when it arrived at the restaurant and when it was served on the pizza. Join this session to discover how Blockchain technology will answer the primary consumer demand of our age by creating a new standard of transparency and openness. Learn how this technology would scale the delivery and distribution with IoT and Edge Computing.

She has led various industry first initiatives for Papa John’s Digital right from the SMS ordering technology launch in 2007 to latest re-launch of Mapping and Papa Rewards platform in 2018. 65% of Papa John’s sales come from Digital Channels today.
