At Highland Ag, we believe that data is the key to unlocking success in agriculture. But when it comes to aggregating, analyzing, and presenting that data, not all approaches are created equal. In this episode, we discuss the need for a more reliable source of data in the fresh produce industry and why we built Highland Ag MarketWatch.
Highland Ag MarketWatch® is a SAAS software created specifically for the fresh produce industry by long-time industry leaders. The software aggregates data from several fresh produce-specific ERPs to provide real-time insights, including market pricing, inventories, freight rate, and trends. It’s faster than traditional ways of gathering information, and it keeps every arm of your operation informed.
According to the United Nations, 14 percent of food produced worldwide is lost between harvest and retail, and the fresh produce industry is no exception. However, sustainability in agriculture is becoming increasingly important, and data analysis is helping companies tackle the problem of food waste. We discovered through a pro-competitive data analysis tool, Highland Ag MarketWatch®, supply chain transparency has helped the fresh produce industry reduce food waste.
