Rabobank and Rabo Foundation are excited to announce the launch of its “SustainableAg Asia Challenge”. Agtech companies with innovative solutions, that promote integrity in the agri-food supply chain in Asia, are invited to apply. The selected companies will benefit from networking opportunities with leading agri-businesses and eco-system partners to help them scale their businesses.
As agri-food supply chains are becoming increasingly interconnected – from input companies to farmers, traders, food companies and retailers – data and innovation are key to meet the increased demand for food. Better data collection, analysis and sharing will improve integrity in the agri-food supply chain. Moreover, data-driven technology will enable farmers and food & agri companies to make more informed decisions, triggering new smart farming and processing techniques and new ways of food distribution. With the vast majority of smallholder farmers living in Asia, agtech solutions will enable farmers to improve their crop production and access to markets, and in turn improve their incomes.
