IGTC supports industry-wide digitalization workshop in Geneva

A grain trade workshop was held on 31 January in Geneva, with the aim of exchanging information on current digitalization initiatives and identifying critical pathways for interoperability between them. 

The event was an opportunity for government representatives and organizations such as the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and World Bank to have feedback first-hand from grain traders on the ePhyto Solution. It was also a chance for all, including delegates from other commodity flows, to hear about the current work that is taking place to standardize and digitize global agricultural commodity trade operations for the benefit of the entire industry. The workshop was co-organized by the IGTC Secretariat, Archer Daniels Midland, Bunge, Cargill Incorporated, COFCO International and Louis Dreyfus Company.
