Agrari Launched a Crowdfunding Campaign for Direct Shipments

With this proposal, Agrari aims to revitalize the agricultural and rural sector, in the search for a sustainable model of human interactions, in which fair payments are ensured to each link in the chain while offering a fresh and top-quality product, but with the convenience of fast last mile logistics, which has had so much growth in recent years.

Agrari has opened a crowdfunding campaign on the platform goteo.org, with the aim of optimizing its operations and be able to send product, from the garden to the table, on the same day and not the next day as it currently works.

The objective of this crowdfunding is to continue helping more farmers, reduce the carbon footprint of the agri-food sector, as well as digitize and optimize its operations through the development of proprietary software. To do this, Agrari aims to raise 10,000 euros to reduce logistics times and allow orders, instead of arriving the next day, to be received at home in less than 6 hours from the order.

At the moment, Agrari is a platform that connects local farmers with end consumers, allowing home delivery the day after the purchase is made. Agrari has made nearly 100 shipments in the last few months, reducing almost a thousand tons of CO2 thanks to proximity consumption. Currently, they have a portfolio of 20 active farmers and almost a hundred interested in collaborating when they are able to operate in their cities.

In the words of Jesus Deusa, CEO of Agrari: “With these improvements and development, we will be able to digitize the entire communication process between the collaborating farmers and us, which speeds up the preparation of the products, in addition to some internal improvements for the assembly of the box, which will make it more efficient and with fewer errors, and the integration with the electric eco messaging company, so that the order is made in a semi-automatic way.”

According to Jesús Deusa “Thanks to the fact that we eliminate all intermediaries, we are able to pay up to 5 times more to small farmers, besides helping them to reduce costs and improve their production”.
