In most cases, moving food from farm to table is an incredible feat of horizontal integration. If we’re to keep pace in a rapidly modernizing world, the food industry needs to do a lot more to coordinate our efforts to cultivate, process, distribute, and sell food. We’ve never had as much data for food as we do now, but, for the most part, our data remain siloed and underutilized.

Now more than ever, the food industry needs a data standard.

Leveraging today’s data collection technologies and analytics, we can transform information into actionable intelligence, integrate the various stages of the supply chain and improve the way we efficiently and safely feed the world.
