Food & Medicine are life-essential products, but because of the way today's global supply chains are run, most of us do not know what we are really getting when we consume food or use medicine.
At the Ambrosus project we aim to radically improve the global supply chains by creating a trusted ecosystem where we can reliably record the entire history of products and execute commercial transactions accordingly.
We seek to enable a more secure and autonomous supply chain, improve distribution processes and allow consumers to easily see where their products come from and what is really in them.
We invite you to learn more, and to stay tuned as we provide more information over the next few months.
