WHAT

Mercaris provides its subscribers — primarily producers, processors and procurement professionals— pricing data and access to a trading platform to buy/sell organic non-GMO and other identity preserved commodities.

WHY

To create more transparency, efficiency and liquidity in the market for buying/selling organic, non-GMO and other identity preserved commodities.

MISSION

Our investment in Mercaris was driven by our belief that the market demand for organic, non-GMO and other identity crops is growing but is being constrained by supply. Mercaris is building tools and platforms that will help to expand supply and increase the ability of farmers, processors and procurers to reap the benefits of a more efficient and liquid marketplace.
