An Agritech growth opportunity – a disruptive grain and livestock marketplace for UK farmers.

 

 

Introduction

Our marketplaces facilitate trade in agricultural commodities – principally livestock and grain.

We have now brought the complementary brands of Graindex (www.graindex.com) and Sell My Livestock (www.sellmylivestock.co.uk) together under Hectare Agritech Limited (“Hectare”). An investment in Hectare will be an investment in both businesses.

Graindex allows individual farmers to sell grain and other combinable crops direct from their farm to some of the world’s biggest merchants, via a simple, transparent and competitive mechanism. SellMyLivestock is putting the £5bn annual trade in UK farm livestock online. Farmers and livestock marketeers are reaching a nationwide audience with a single listing – think of it as like RightMove, but for cattle and sheep.

Traditional routes to market for farmers are fragmented, expensive and lack transparency. Livestock tends to be transported to outdated and inefficient auction markets typically charging 4.8% commission plus costs, while most of the UK’s £4bn grain is traded over the phone.

Most farmers know this needs to change. With depressed commodity prices they are looking for better ways of trading, and we are providing the answer.
