The project will develop and demonstrate a robust demo for a digital B2B platform focused on reducing on-farm waste and increasing profits. The platform will provide a range of tools to inform, promote collaboration, boost organic waste commercialisation, through the schedule of future harvests, business partnerships, donation actions, and quality control.
Project partners: Food and Fibre Gippsland Inc. and Rocket Seeder
The $10 million Circular Economy Business Support Fund supports individual applicants and collaborative partnerships to investigate or implement solutions that target waste prevention, reuse, remanufacture and upcycling. This initiative is part of the Victorian Government’s $515 million investment to deliver the biggest transformation and reform of Victoria’s waste and recycling industry.
ConnectOne club is a pioneer in building collaboration and aggregation tools for farmer communities which enables them to –
- Coordinate with the member farmers.
- Forecast the collective harvest
- Connect with wholesale buyers
- Negotiate the best price for the produce.
- Negotiate the best price for the input services.
- Build Circular Economy frameworks
- Get access to modern AgriTech AI and Robotics products
- Share or Rent farm equipment and machinery
- Build Knowledge repositories
ConnectOne Club has already built similar platforms for Cardamom farmers in India, which has traded USD42 Million worth of cardamom since December 2019. ConnectOne’s collaboration module and AI-powered demand-supply algorithms will be used to build the digital platform for the Gippsland Food cluster, whose annual agriculture production volume is estimated to be $7 Billion. AgriTech ecosystem leader Rocket Seeder also will be joining in this platform operations.
With ConnectOne Club’s experience in building farmer collaboration platforms, Gippsland food cluster’s local expertise, and Rocketseeder’s Agritech experience, this project is positioned to become a significant partner in Gippsland’s $ 7 billion agriculture market. In the second phase, this platform will be extended to other food clusters and farmer communities in Australia and abroad.
