The Internet of Things (IoT), using sensors as one of the building blocks, is the connection of devices which enables them to ‘talk’ to each other.
The result is the collection of data and the ability to automate activities and actions. The current thinking is that there will be over 26 billion connected devices by 2020.
Food provenance, therefore, is becoming one of the major points of differentiation. Coupled with biosecurity compliance, farms are required more than ever to validate the origin of their produce.
