In a world where up to one third of all food produced is lost or wasted before it is consumed, it’s no surprise that almost a billion people are still hungry and wrestling every day to survive. Even if just one-fourth of the food currently lost or wasted globally could be saved, it would be enough to feed 870 million hungry people in the world – 12% of the world population! Likewise, the highly ineffective food ecosystem is promoting waste of labour, water, energy, land and other inputs that went into producing food.
80 percent of the global food loss occurs prior to retail and the farm is the starting point for food quality, shelf time and traceability. Farmers face great uncertainty and are under pressure to deliver more and better. Today being a farmer is one of the toughest, riskiest and most stressful job worldwide. Mothive is committed to helping farmers along their journey.
Founded in 2015 and headquartered in London (UK), Mothive is an innovative agri-tech company that envisions a world with zero food waste and a sustainable agriculture ecosystem. We’re elevating the role of the farm in our lives by making it visible and predictable to farmers and all actors in the food supply chain.
Mothive empowers farmers with a simple, affordable and turnkey solution that de-risks their operations and extracts more value from the crop. We predict and inform farmers about the right time to harvest and related logistics, predict diseases and improve yields, and automate farm tasks based on real-time crop needs.
For the first time we enable post-harvest actors to access real-time farm data and predictions. This disrupts how agriculture is done today and creates an opportunity for anyone to develop new business models and solutions. By sharing predictions, we’re also increasing food shelf-life and quality while reducing global food waste.
We are a passionate and committed team that combines many years of experience in engineering, science and agronomy.
