Blockchain-based digital transformation of a short food supply chain

A short food supply chain connects local farmers with local customers. However, beside the agriculture domain, this process also includes logistics, trading and dissemination. Even though the process is more individual and natural, it still needs more improvement in order to facilitate its acceptance from the broader local communities. Furthermore, even though interesting, the potential customers sometimes also lack the trust into such food, which in many cases is more expensive, while giving no real proof of its origin. To improve the process in terms of efficiency, traceability and trust, a digital transformation of the process, backed by blockchain technology is the best possible solution.

Drava Bike Trail

The cycling route along Drava runs through 4 countries (Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia) and has a total length of about 710 km. The route begins right next to the source of Drava on Toblach Field (Toblach) in Italy. It then continues through Austria, Slovenia, and finally Croatia (where the route is not yet fully arranged and marked). The total length of marked Drava Bike trail is now 510 km. The first 70 km of the cycling route from the source of Drava are very interesting, since we mostly ride downslope. A large section of the cycling route runs through Carinthia and crosses the border to Slovenia at Vič, continuing through Slovenia from Dravograd past Radlje ob Dravi, Maribor and Ptuj, all the way to Ormož and Središče ob Dravi, where it crosses into Croatia after 145 km. The river and the cycling route continue their path towards Varaždin, where the river Mura (also famous for its cycling route – Mura Cycling Route), after 63 km, at Legrad, converges with the river Drava, which then flows into the Danube near Osijek.
