At the National Conference on Horticultural Value Chains in Pune, India, the Swiss-Indian agri-tech platform company Innoterra won the National Award for Entrepreneurship in Agriculture.

The award highlights Innoterra's leading position in the agri-tech market as a platform company. The company garnered significant recognition for its success in perishables, particularly for the growth of the banana cluster in India. 2,000 people, including FPOs, farmers, researchers, and policymakers, participated in the event, which the Union Ministry of Agriculture organized, the Government of India. Dr. Anup Karwa, Head of Nutrition for Innoterra (India), participated in the event with a booth showcasing a range of the company’s products and services.

Dr. Karwa noted the recognition "demonstrates our dedication to enhancing the livelihoods of farmer households associated with horticultural clusters" when speaking about the award. We are ready to collaborate with the Indian horticultural community to provide traceable, high-quality, certified food products to feed the globe.

The company's platform business is built upon and launched from its nutrition business. Launched in April 2022, Innoterra’s platform connects the whole agricultural value chain with two robust digital orchestration marketplaces.  

Farmers can get farm inputs through the input market, and the output market links smallholder farmer households with retailers for offtake. Innoterra recently reached the milestone of adding more than 12,000 retailers and 323,500 farmer households to its platform.
