The Future of Citizen Services Industry Podcast Episode 2: Technology to Feed the Hungry
We know that 25% of people in the developing world suffer from hunger, yet up to 40% of food is lost or wasted. AgriLedger, an agricultural-focused blockchain systems provider, helps farmers and co-operatives plan the distribution of produce more effectively.
Avanade’s Miranda Hill is joined by Genevieve Leveille, Chief Executive Officer, to discuss Blockchain, how it can benefit the agricultural supply and value chains worldwide, plus the broader ecosystem impacts and other stakeholders in the value chain.

Chief Executive Officer, AgriLedger
For the past 25 years Genevieve built a career helping the bankers and treasurers find better way of keeping track of the cash. These beans were not the only one she kept record of. Her love of food is evidenced by the over 6K of food snaps in her iPhone.
With AgriLedger she vies to provide a fair share for those who produce it and this means for all of us to know where our food comes from.
