Dimitra 2021 Year End Recap
We’ve certainly had a momentous year in 2021 at Dimitra. First, I wanted to thank our communities across the world, our exchange partners, our esteemed network of partners, our amazing internal team members, Dimitra Ambassadors, and our outstanding external contractors.
We couldn’t have achieved so much without all of your support and hard work and in believing in Dimitra. It has been a team effort, and we’re so much closer to realizing our mission of moving mountains and helping with; global hunger, food security, and food sustainability.
Here’s a summary of what we’ve accomplished in 2021:
Dimitra now has 123 Dimitra team members in 68 countries, and we expect this number to double in 2022. This is amazing to look back upon to see where we were a year ago and how small the team was!
Dimitra was awarded a contract from the OBC Indian Chamber of Commerce, Industries, and Agriculture for deploying the “Connected Farmer” platform to 1.3 million farms in India for soil assessment & remediation. This may be one of the largest soil remediation projects ever. Dimitra was also awarded a contract with Agzon Agritech for 350,000 farms to distribute our “Connected Farmer platform.”
Dimitra has signed a partnership with the 3rd largest fruit producer globally, the Brazilian Association of Fruit Producers and Exporters (ABRAFRUTAS). Its members represent more than 85% of the total fruit exported by Brazil. Dimitra will explore how our technologies can be used to increase efficiency in Brazilian fruit farming, logistics, and exports. Some context on how massive this is — Agriculture is responsible for 26% of GDP in 2020 in Brazil, and 32.5% of workers within Brazil are linked to agribusiness.
Dimitra has signed an agreement to work with the Ugandan National Animal Genetics Research Center (NAGRC) and Loys’ Technologies to build a system that allows Uganda to use historical & genetic data around the parentage of cattle and find out ways to improve the health of cattle and increase livestock productivity.
In partnership with SOJAG, Dimitra will implement our Connected Farmer Platform in Bangladesh to support several critical farmer service initiatives already underway. These projects include agriculture education programs, farm & livestock insurance, micro-credit financing, food safety, and security. The scope of this project is one million farms.
We conducted a pre-sale token raise from June to September and raised $6.5 million USD. We appreciate all of our big and small investors — a big thank you to you all!
We are honored to work with you all, and we’re expecting this number to grow significantly in 2022!
