Neogen’s Investment into Blockchain Technology

Points: Assignment 2 is worth 50 points of your final grade.

Groups: You are allowed to do the project as an individual or in a group with a maximum of 3 students (the assignment will receive a zero if there are more than 3 students). Be careful about who you pick to be a part of your group. If you have a group member that does not participate, you need to speak to me immediately when the problem arises. If you do not involve me early, I cannot assist in the solution, then do not complain to me after the final project has been turned in.  If it has been determined by the professor that a group member is not participating in the group project, they will receive a zero for this assignment.

Objective: The goal of this assignment is to have you apply your knowledge of the food supply chain to a real life activity that a consultant to the CEO of Neogen corporation  might have to evaluate. This activity requires the formulation of a relevant problem statement, the collection and analysis of information, and the articulation of recommendations.
