Alvaro Ramirez Founder and CEO of eHarvestHub joins Future Tech Podcast to share how his company is using blockchain technologies and cryptocurrency to change the way fresh food is distributed.
Small farmers grow between 60 and 70% of the food that we eat, and independent owner/operator truckers move 90% of that production, yet, they make the least profits. food is expensive and inaccessible because it zig-zags 7 to 10 times before it makes it to the grocery store increasing in price each time it exchanges hands. These layers of middlemen leave little profits for the farmers and truckers who produce and transport our food and consumers paying higher prices for their food.
eHarvestHub provides small fresh produce growers with a single affordable and easy-to-use cloud solution to manage their produce life cycle, from seeding to shipping.
