Agro.Club, an AgTech company with a presence in Europe, South America, and North America, has announced the expansion of its grain marketplace to operate globally in order to improve the security and sustainability of the agricultural value chain. The company leverages technology to streamline extremely fragmented and operational grain trade flows, allowing registered farmers of any size to sell crops worldwide. This move comes as recent data from the World Economic Forum in Davos indicates that food systems and food security are in danger due to factors such as COVID-19, disruptions of international trade, climate change, and high inflation rates.
Agro.Club’s global grain marketplace has the potential to become a key component in ensuring global food security. The full-stack B2B platform, which has over 35,000 farmers and thousands of grain companies on board, now allows any grain transaction to be carried out not only in the country but also on an international scale. Using the marketplace, any farmer has the opportunity to sell crops all over the world. In seconds, embedded algorithms analyze thousands of offers in search of the best supply-demand match, providing transparency on price and availability for both parties. Moreover, Agro.Club operational teams complete the full execution process with KYC checks, quality control, logistics, and financing, making deals very secure and hassle-free.
The automated processes result in significantly reduced paperwork and the direct nature of the transactions cuts out intermediaries and unnecessary transportation and storage, reducing the carbon footprint of every grain trade. Agro.Club’s CEO, Egor Kirin, stated, “We’re on the path to becoming the largest global agriculture marketplace,
bringing more security and sustainability to food supply chains.” He added, “Our proven and scaled in-country marketplace model now enters a new phase of growth, connecting farmers in major crop-producing regions with grain companies around the world.”
Agro.Club’s expansion to a global marketplace will provide more trading opportunities for growers and grain buyers on different continents, while also reducing price volatility and increasing efficiency in the grain trade. With a top-tier executive team with global agtech, digital, grain trade, and fintech expertise, the company is well-positioned to continue its growth in the coming years. Agro.Club’s grain business is already operationally profitable, with over $150 million of grain transactions financed and executed. The company is now present in three of the largest agricultural hubs, with further plans to expand to more regions.
