Originally a city girl, a lawyer by training, now a proud farmer, Emma Weston CEO and Co-Founder of AgriDigital, is the consummate entrepreneur. She co-founded AgriDigital to use technology to ensure greater transparency and profitability across grain supply chains. We’re talking about the winners --and losers--from a shift to shorter and transparent supply chains.
Emma’s response to who is asking for transparency? Everyone. In a globalized food system that has divorced us from the source of our food, verifiable data enables farmers to shift from price takers to value creators, allows consumers to buy with confidence--and implicates every step of the supply chain in between. By looking at trends in agtech over the past centuries, Emma charts a vision for the future of agtech innovation.
