CEO, David Flanders
was delighted to receive the award for Agrimetrics explaining how important its global partnerships were in delivering a truly global vision. In his acceptance speech he asked what do Airbus, Microsoft and Agrimetrics got to do with feeding the world?
"The planet isn't getting bigger, but the population is: 10 billion in little more than a generation from now. And with more people, and less land to grow food, we need to get more and more out of less.
Agrimetrics is providing the agrifood sector with a unique opportunity to access
data, and data capabilities, that will transform the way we produce food.
"Airbus? They are the world's biggest supplier of detailed images from space of farmland.
Microsoft? They have amazing AI and machine learning expertise.
Agrimetrics partners with both, pulling together their resources with our domain skills to create a data marketplace to collate, share, monetise and enhance the use of data right across the agri-food sector: doing our bit to help feed the world sustainably."
