AGRI-FOOD ECOSYSTEM

We developed a new ecosystem focused on competitiveness and productivity for Colombian agriculture and its internationalization.

It is a PINE project (Strategic Project of National Interest) backed by the Ministry of Agriculture that links the fundamental pillars of the production chain, from the seed to the supermarket aisle; avoiding inefficient processes and costs, bringing producers and end consumers closer. It improves the farmers’ quality of life and food security in Colombia and the world.
