AgriDigital brings trade, finance and traceability into one global digital solution for supply chain from farmer to consumer.
AgriDigital’s cloud-based, blockchain enabled commodity management platform makes agricultural supply chains simple, easy and secure. Focussed on the grains and cotton sectors, AgriDigital enables its farmer, trader, buyer, processor and storage operator users to manage all of their contracts, deliveries, inventory, orders, invoices and payments in one place and in real time. We recently launched our first supply chain finance product for cotton growers and are now developing embedded supply chain finance and risk products for the grains industry.
AgriDigital is a leader in the application of blockchain technologies to global agricultural supply chains and in December 2016 facilitated the first sale and settlement of a physical agri-commodity between a farmer and a grain buyer on a blockchain. AgriDigital continues to develop whole of supply chain finance solutions for physical and digital assets.
