Grain Trade Becoming More Digitized, Agro.Club Expands B2B Grain Marketplace Into Brazil
Agtech solution provider Agro.Club calls it “grain trade re-invented”. The startup has recently announced the expansion of its full stack B2B Grain Marketplace into Brazil where it can fill a widespread need for grain trade digitalization.
Founded in 2018, Agro.Club is a U.S.-based agtech provider with operations across North America, Europe, and now, South America, that has raised capital from major investors including Rabobank, Elevator Ventures, Speedinvest, and VentureFriends.
The company’s Full Stack Marketplace model has already increased transparency, addressed inefficiencies in grain trade execution, facilitated logistics, and filled financing gaps for farmers and grain companies to reduce risks for all players involved.
Brazil is the fourth largest food producing country in the world, and one of the largest producers of soybeans, corn, and sugarcane, with agriculture accounting for 5.9 percent of the country’s GDP. In 2021, the country hit a record when it exported 86.63 million tons of soybeans, according to the National Association of Cereal Exporters. Agro.Club’s platform can help farmers and grain traders interact more effectively, while also facilitating grain quality control, KYC (know your customer), logistics, and financing of transactions.
