Flowers have long been associated with every civilization and culture in the world. Dating as far back as the ice age, flowers were used to celebrate life's significant events, expressing emotions in ways that words could not. For thousands of years, back to the age of the Pharaohs in Egypt and the Han Dynasty in China, people have given each other fresh flowers as gifts. There is a universal appreciation for the beauty of flowers.
The current Floral industry has problems with propagation, sourcing, import, shipping, logistics, the florist, and accountability.
The global floral market encompasses a wide variety of sectors from breeders, growers, importers, shippers, wholesalers, retailers and consumers. FloraChain seeks to unite these segments under one standard, digital floral currency.
FloraChain wants to change the path of the floral industry through blockchain technology and IoT. By designing a radically transparent floral supply chain, FloraChain harnesses grower and factory data to create the Blockchain of Flowers, an unprecedented floral supply network that maps the flower supply journey from grower to consumer.
By uniquely leveraging blockchain technology, they created a digital bridge that engenders transparency, trust, and honesty for flower growers, factories, distributors, and consumers. They want to transform the flower industry by working with every participant along the floral supply chain to create a world in which access to data equals integrity, sustainability, quality, and longer vase life for all consumers.
According to FloraChain, the company has already established a number of strategic partnerships with clients such as Floravina and Bloomhouse, to help develop a sustainable business going forward.
