agridigital australia

AgriDigital is an Australian Fintech company that's about to hit the market. The Aussie fintech has managed to raise, as of 2022, over $17.4 million. It is a niche fintech that allows thousands of farmers to manage their grain supply chains.

And not just farmers, but bulk handlers and traders. In this blog piece, we’ll give you a snapshot of this extremely targeted and pigeonhole fintech and how, thanks to its passionate team, has been allowing farmers to grow their supply chains and operations.

What is AgriDigital?

AgriDigital is a cloud-based commodity management platform. That commodity is grain. The company was spearheaded and founded by a dedicated group of agricultural professionals with a combined 80-years of experience in the field. The team, using today’s techs, as well as their personal knowledge, managed to create a digital ecosystem where farmers and traders can interact in confidence. 

The company aims to become an industry leader, particularly since it is one of the few that uses blockchain software and platforms to assist in the transaction and settlement of agricultural commodities. Blockchain tech allows it access to distributed ledgers, anonymity, and smart contracts. AgriDigital leverages this tech to help farmers grow, get paid immediately, save money and time on brokerage, and enable paddock to plate transparency for consumers. 

The AgriDigital platform isn’t just aimed at farmers and growers, but anyone involved in the purchase, sale, or storage of an agricultural commodity. Its main commodity is grain.  

AgriDigital Features 

AgriDigital is a fintech that’s aimed at a very specific group of consumers — mainly people that trade in agricultural commodities. This makes it a very limited and niche-oriented fintech. One that is mostly aimed at people who are moving grains or other agricultural commodities, selling and trading them, bulking up in them, or looking for financial options to grow in this industry. 

Emma has created a 5 module platform that describes the benefits of using AgriDigital and more importantly how it works in the real world. 


The transaction module of the AgriDigital platform allows sellers and buyers to enter into iron-clad contracts, manage transaction prices, supervise deliveries and inventory, and manage all their everyday logistics. This includes, but is not limited, to invoicing taxes, and payments. 


Through the storage module, framers and trades can contact or supervise storage providers and site operators. This module allows them to manage their stocks, create deliveries into sites or ports, manage inventory, and oversee the quality of their silos. 


This module is a customer management solution that underpins all other modules — it is the equivalent of a main dashboard. 


The finance module allows farmers and traders to have quick, easy access to finance and repayments options. This is a module that, also of 2021, was still in its infancy.


The final module, the remit module, automatically calculates and then collects payments from buyers — and then splices it up into different deductions, including government and industry levies, end-point royalties, storage fees, provider fees, transportation fees, etc.
