WASTELESS Open access Blockchain

The WASTELESS Blockchain will host an electronic ledger, developed on the basis of the FLW Standard of the FLW Protocol (the first international standard for measuring and monitoring food loss and waste), in which food business operators can enter and monitor data and information related to their processes and side streams, including FLW. The data entered is reported based on the Lansink scale and the Waste Hierarchy, to demonstrate an operator’s degree of virtuosity in preventing and reducing FLW.

The Blockchain aims to be a publicly accessible platform for innovation, following OpenTimestamps standards to confirm when data is added, thereby deterring fraud by monitoring other participants in the food supply chain and related stakeholders.
