Coca Cola Bottlers To Use Blockchain To Streamline Supply-chain Network

unibright2 blockchain 080520 lt

Coke One North America or CONA, has teamed up with blockchain app builder Provide Technologies and blockchain solutions developer Unibright to establish a blockchain-powered Coca-Cola Bottling Harbor, which will use the Baseline Protocol to streamline Coca-Cola's bottling supply-chain network as well as boost transparency and efficiency.

The Baseline Protocol was developed and launched in March by EY, in cooperation with ConsenSys and Microsoft. It is an open source initiative for the public Ethereum blockchain for enterprises to run end-to-end processes securely and privately.

CONA is the tech partner to the twelve largest Coca-Cola Bottlers in North America. It provides the bottlers with a common set of processes, data standards, manufacturing and customer solutions tailored for the North America Coca-Cola bottling business.

In 2019, CONA implemented a blockchain-powered platform based on Hyperledger Fabric, which runs on SAP BaaS platform, for the first set of North America Coca-Cola Bottlers. The platform helped make the intricate cross-organization supply chain transactions between franchised bottling company's friction less, more efficient and transparent.

CONA now wants to extend the use-case from the internal network to a larger audience by establish a blockchain-powered "Coca Cola Bottling Harbor" for Coca-Cola Bottling suppliers. This will include internal bottlers-suppliers and also external suppliers such as raw materials vendors supplying cans and bottles.

The Coca Cola Bottling Harbor will enable an integrated, private, distributed integration network. This will include transactions between buyers and suppliers with referencing business objects such as Request, Proposal, Purchase Order, Delivery, Invoice and Payment.

The project launched by CONA, Provide and Unibright is scheduled to showcase initial results in the fourth quarter of 2020.
