End-to-end digital platform enabling global agricultural commodity trade for farmers and industries


PROBLEM

Most industries require some agricultural commodity as raw material for their production. Many of these commodities can be sourced from Africa as the continent makes up 60% of the world’s arable lands. However, many industries across the world have difficulties sourcing commodities from African farmers due to the broken value chain, under investments and middlemen antics that makes agriculture in Africa undesirable for farmers and global buyers.

SOLUTION

An end-to-end digital marketplace that enables global industries to source agriculture commodities, grown to their specifications, from farmers all over the world using IoT, big data and blockchain technology. It enables market access and eliminates middlemen. Farmers are monitored by IoT devices and satellite data and given real-time agronomic insights. Buyers are able to place and monitor their orders in accordance with needs and build trusted supply chains.
