Industry Overview

The Agribusiness industry is highly diverse and a high-tech commercial industry centred on the business side of farming.  It covers businesses operating as meat processors, grain wholesalers and agricultural machinery sellers right through to all different types of farming.  For wholesalers and distributors selling products and consumables within this market, there is now the need to apply industry standards and supply chain processes.

Industry working groups are in place to help these companies decipher the standards and apply these to their trading practice.  The need to trade across more vertical industry segments makes this program crucial.  The strong focus towards global standards for numbering & barcodes, data sync and B2B will ultimately reduce costs and support a more efficient supply chain.
