Mercaris: Bringing Market Intelligence to Sustainable Agriculture
February 14th at 3 PM CT
Agriculture, food and their related industries are, simply put, a massive market. They contributed a combined $1.05 trillion to U.S. GDP in 2016, a 5.7% share, with farms alone accounting for 1% of total GDP. Within the agriculture and food space, sales of organic products in the U.S. totaled a new record of $49.4 billion in 2017, up 6.4% from 2016. Organic labeled products accounted for 5.5% of the food sold in U.S retail channels. But, for decades, the industry has been isolated from this market, unable to perform analytics, gain insights from price and sales trends, and more. Learn how one company is bridging this gap with new tech-enabled tools at “Bringing Market Intelligence to Sustainable Agriculture,” a webinar to be held at 3pm CT on February 14th featuring Kellee James and Jessie Bovay of Mercaris.
