THE PROBLEM
Small co-operatives are currently by far the best way to improve efficiency in developing countries and help farmers retain a bigger share of their crop value. Co-ops presently rely on paper-based records, verbal promises, and complicated agreements; this frequently causes critical problems due to lack of transparency, restricted access to price data, lying, graft, and corruption.

AgriLedger is a Mobile App that records and transacts incorruptible truth using blockchain technology. It is a complete framework of integrated services for delivering an even playing field to farmers and co-ops. This solid framework of trust allows everyone to know they are working, buying, selling, and sharing things according to a cryptographic “Book of Truth” that is utterly incorruptible.

FOOD SECURITY
Using Simple Technology, We Can Make Small Improvements That Will Have A Life Changing Impact For Billions Of People!

One-third of the world’s available food either spoils or gets thrown away before it ever reaches a plate—that’s enough to feed everyone in the world for two months. And with 1.2 billion people food insecure or undernourished, millions of vulnerable smallholder farmers losing profits they can’t spare, and a population expected to increase by 2 billion by 2050, we cannot afford to allow these losses to continue. – Rockefeller Foundation

On 470 million smallholder farms across Africa, lack of access to training and technology negatively impacts harvests and farmers livelihoods.

When crops and food exports don’t make it to market, the economic development and global competitiveness of agriculture-dependent nations suffer as well.

50% food produced in Africa is wasted.

According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nation (FAO), the amount of food wasted on the continent is enough to feed 300 million people. The statistics of food production compared to hunger suggest that Africa actually produces more than enough to feed itself.

THE CO-OPERATIVE
Farmers Join Together In Co-Ops To Overcome The Challenges But Are Still Facing The Lack Of Following

1 Trust
Lack of trust between co-op staff and farmers.

2 Efficiency
Paper-based systems are labor intensive, error prone and difficult for locals to understand.

3 Audit
No audit trail enables corruption and graft.

4 Transparency
Both farmers and Co-ops lack access to transaction records, market and price information.
