Access to fresh food isn't always easy, in fact, Right now the average travel distance for fresh produce in the USA is 2000 miles. And that’s because farming, right now, is highly centralized.
But there is a bigger problem. The average farmer in the US is in his late fifties and newer generations are not filling that gap. This translates to billions of dollars being lost every single year.
Although indoor farms and greenhouses can help solve some local problems, we believe that the future will be a combination of traditional farming, robotics, and machine learning.
Panama is home to some of the highest quality coffee in the world, and we are currently working with some exciting robotic farming companies focused on automated coffee production.
If you are a robotic agriculture startup we would like to hear form you.
