Buy smarter, sell smarter

Agrismart Procurement – Having been involved at senior management level within some of the most established Agricultural Co-ops and Buying Groups both as suppliers and buyers, we have seen the costs associated with agricultural procurement spiral over the last decade. This industry operates under a notion that increased buying power decreases price to the customer.  It quite simply doesn’t. One size doesn’t fit all and as 10 years of aggressive acquisition has led to large corporations with even larger overheads, that require more capital and increased margins, the price goes up to our farmers and end users.   

We provide solutions to farmers and agricultural businesses that allow them to be more efficient and ultimately more competitive with a solution that works for the whole supply chain.  Only by doing this can farm input prices see a reduction.
