Australia: Grain on the Blockchain — How Digital Supply Chains are Greening Agriculture
Australian commodity management platform AgriDigital has handled over AUD$1.2 billion (US$861 million) of grain transactions to date, representing over six million tonnes, reports Eco-Business. The company is expanding into cotton and other commodities, and has begun exploring the U.S. market.
But it is AgriDigital’s blockchain arm, Geora, which might have the most impact in Asia Pacific. Bridie Ohlsson, head of blockchain strategy at AgriDigital, is excited about the possibilities that more data-rich supply chains offer, particularly in empowering agriculture that is aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
