Building the Future of the Agricultural Commodities Trade.

Introducing F2M: farm to multinational.

Utilising technology to expand financial access in emerging markets. Get A Quote

Global demand for trade finance is rising, but SMEs are failing to get the funding they need. F2M empowers farmers to sell directly into global supply chain.

How It Works

Approaching trade finance differently

Multinational Buyer in Europe issues purchase order for cocoa.

Farmer delivers cocoa to exchange. Sponsors pay Farmers.

TFM delivers cocoa to buyers. Buyers pay and sponsors receive money.

Highlights

How F2M Works

Empowerment

Sponsor farmers so they can supply multinationals directly - driving financial inclusion.

Commodities

Everyone loves chocolate - so we're focusing initially on cocoa to ensure the farmers who grow it get paid fairly while we enjoy it.

Trade Corridor

Initial focus is between West Africa and multinational European buyers with a track record.

Transparency

Opaqueness is removed via our partnership with an African commodities exchange.

Provenance

Blockchain technology ensures supply chain traceability.

Secured

Warehouse receipt proves ownership of goods and collateral managament agreement ensures release will not occur until buyer agrees to pay.
