Afriagrimark

Afriagrimark

83% of small and middle-holder farmers in Africa lack access to ready markets and face rampant exploitation by intermediaries and post-harvest losses, undercutting their income by 225%. On the other end of the value chain is 84% and 71% vendors experiencing post-harvest and problems sourcing for fresh produce. Afriagrimark is a Geo-location marketplace connecting truckers to vendors for immediate vegetable delivery from farmers cutting transport costs by 40%, delivery time by half and post-harvest losses to 3%. Combining distributed ledger and AI to synchronize information in real-time ensures traceability and quality. Our target is 100,000 farmers from our current 1,500 and 12,000 vendors from our current 35 with a revenue of $311 million.
