Bringing food traceability from farmers to the hands of consumersWe are what we eat. We eat fruits and vegetables every day, but do we know what exactly do we eat? How were they grown and with which substances were they treated? Agrivi (www.agrivi.com), a global agtech company that helps thousands of farmers in over 150 countries to improve their production, is bringing food traceability from farmers directly to the hands of consumers. We are proud to announce the launch of Agrivi certificate that empowers both farmers and consumers.
