AgGateway is a non-profit consortium of businesses serving the agriculture industry, with the mission to promote, enable and expand eBusiness in agriculture.
Our long-term vision is to become the recognized international source for enabling the use of information and communication technologies for agriculture.
AgGateway currently has more than 160 member companies working on projects within nine major industry segments:
Each segment forms a council that operates autonomously within the overall guidelines of AgGateway. The structure allows the councils to determine their own eBusiness priorities and projects. They are responsible for funding their own projects, and each council elects its own leaders that represent it on the AgGateway Board of Directors.
Expanding the use of eBusiness is essential to many facets of modern ag production, including just-in-time inventory, traceability, sustainability (waste reduction, water management, resource allocation) and efficient use of manpower.
AgGateway enables eBusiness as a means to:
- improve business processes
- help deliver excellent customer service
- streamline the supply chain
- enhance food safety
- support sustainable agricultural practices.
AgGateway is effective because it brings together people in a collaborative process, within and across agricultural sectors. Our working groups don’t just establish industry-wide solutions, but also implement them so that eConnectivity becomes a working reality.
