Applied chain economics is the subject of Agriterra’s 3rd Maurits House Convention and addresses key challenges for sustainable supply chains in emerging markets and the role of app developers. Join us at the Maurits House Convention to transform development challenges in profitable businesses!


Key challenges in sustainable supply chains

Consumers are more demanding than ever. They want traceability of products and social responsibility of companies. Buyers need quality, stable supplies and outreach to thousands of smallholder farmers. Chain collaboration is paramount. Digitization of services and information holds the promise to be part of the solution. Yet, the threshold for upscaling applications is too high. Applied Chain Economics aims to address these challenges.

Agriterra invites you to the Maurits House Convention ‘Beyond the blockchain‘ to shake-up your brains, to think about future trends and technologies and to look into what it can mean for your company’s business. The workshops will take a deep dive into the chains of potatoes, coffee and fruits and vegetables.
