Summary

AGRONOMICS using proximity location of the farm to remove the need to transport crops. Research has shown that fresh crops in transport lose over 50% of their nutrient values. We process day of harvest to ensure high values.

Objectives

AGRONOMICS - Because of proximate processing ensures crops harvested today are processed today.  We are committed to providing facilities to ensure the highest nutritional values possible. Demand for fresh and organic fruit and vegetables, changing consumer online shopping preferences for online groceries, urban population growth, access to nutritious fruit and vegetable on-demand, and improved product offerings are expected to be key demand drivers for increased market growth.  Demand drivers are expected to be supported by improved prolonged shelf life, advanced processing methods, artificial intelligence, advances in freezing methods, equipment modernization, coupled with increasing global trade. Further, demand for clean labels and natural products, and varying consumer dietary patterns are among additional key factors driving product demand.  

Metrics & Targets

AGRONOMICS – Is committed to continued research in  technological advances to ensure our approach is the best available. The Founders are academics first, which allows a unique approach. We research before we take action to ensure our method is the best for the products’ Nutritional Values leaving our facilities. We will measure to test the crops at integral points (on the stem, at harvest, & entry to processing) to ensure they are at the highest nutrient values. We have committed to researching each food crop produced to stay on the cutting edge of emerging technologies. This emerging industry is ripe for the development of new careers for people. This approach focuses on the Health & Well Being of the World Population by providing the best food available and opening the door for the future’s Skills.
