ABOUT US

Grain Discovery is a cutting-edge technology company aiming to revolutionize the agricultural industry. We are changing the agricultural supply chain network and how consumers regain trust and confidence in their food origin story by building a digital ecosystem focusing on price discovery and traceability. The founders have many years of experience in the agricultural and financial markets as traders and quants managing portfolios in the billions of dollars and recognized the potential of blockchain early.

In addition to the marketplace, our goal in 2021 is to expand on our prior, worlds first, blockchain pilots and build an end-to-end digital solution to track commodities through the value chain, providing certification/quality assurances, and provenance data. Modern agriculture is undergoing an important shift: away from a commodities business, where each bushel is considered identical, to an ingredients business, where customers demand distinction. Grain Discovery is capitalizing on these changing industry requirements and believe blockchain is the ideal technology enabler for data connection in revealing our foods “digital passport”.
