The supply chain for agriculture crops is designed for commodities, such as No2 yellow corn. The commodity grains are commingled within a large scale storage and transportation system.
Identity preserved crops are a growing segment of the food supply chain. Organic or non-gmo crops require dedicated acres separate storage, handling and transportation. Crops must be tracked and the identity preserved all the way from the field to the food processor.
Through Gård’s structure, which integrates ownership and farm operations, Gård is well positioning to grow and deliver high value organic and non-GMO crops and deliver commercial quants of identity preserved crops into this rapidly growing market.
