The collaboration between services enables the communication between business entities in an efficient way. In order to achieve the uniformity between the provision and consumption of information we use platforms that can place different actors in the same context and that take advantage of the business architect figure, that defines the business logic implemented through the business process. In this paper it is described a platform that enables business collaboration to the exchange of product information in a retail environment. The proposed system is based on a B2B cloud based platform that provides support for the business logic and the collaboration among business partners. We validate this system through the implementation of some applications that enable farmers, food transportation companies and supermarkets to share information.
