Working with governments to ensure national food security

Supporting national food security

A food security platform can serve as a single source of truth and an early warning hub that provides up-to-date information, insights, and analysis across the value chain. It can predict future price and supply shocks and promotes proactive, evidence-based decision making across all audiences to guarantee the food security of our partners and ensure national strategic reserves.

Gro's approach to monitoring food security involves four elements

1.

Extensive data and analytics

Gro’s vast amount of data allows us to provide current analytics around all major crops and products imported and exported by our partners

2.

Scenario-modeling

Run scenarios to aid key short-, medium-, and long-term food security decisions

3.

Decision making tools

Gro provides tools that help leadership make decisions related to food security, sustainability, and food safety based on data and analytics

4.

Automated alerts

Gro provides automated alerts that help inform when new information can change current assumptions
