Overview
Global warming, wildlife and habitat loss are accelerating and the natural resources which feed, clothe and house us are all under pressure. Driven by the production of a small number of commodities such as seafood, beef, sugar, paper and cotton, these commodities’ supply chains are controlled by less than 500 companies. Many products involve modern slavery and human rights abuses and many are produced in developing markets by the world’s poorest people. You can help change it and make a difference!
  
The Company
As a fully funded start up visioned by world leading consulting and environmental organisations, this company is poised to drive increased responsibility in global food and commodity production and consumption through supply chain traceability and transparency in technology.
  
Using Blockchain, IoT, Data Science and Digital Communication platforms, our client aims to provide unprecedented transparency of supply chains, and in turn responsible consumption by enabling businesses to verify claims about sustainable and ethical production, trace products through the supply chain and share information with consumers in ways that will make a difference.
