Why farmer connect? 

farmer connect

Our company was born out of an identified industry need and an honest desire to find a solution that integrated the farmer at origin into the supply chain.

The dream was to create a scalable and interoperable end-to-end solution that started right from the source and continued all the way to the final consumer. 


Today our solution offers our customers the ability to consolidate sustainability data across entire supply chains to address compliance and reporting needs. From first mile onboarding at scale to systematic reporting for regulatory bodies, banks, corporate needs or consumers.
