About Us

AgriUT Foundation Limited (AFL) is a Non-Profit Social Impact organisation that develops and delivers technology for good into the hands of these Last Mile people. The AFL works with like-minded members, corporations, and organisations that are already active in the Last Mile to foster technology-driven solutions to systemic problems; like world poverty, climate change, and inclusion (technology, finance, gender, etc.). AFL brings modern, high-impact technology into Last Mile communities to bring previously isolated farming communities into international markets, financial services, education, and health services – as well as connections to consumers in wealthy nations.

view The Constitution of AgriUT Foundation Limited

The Foundation

The AgriUT Foundation’s mission is to create a globally scalable, distributed and incentivized system connecting millions of international consumers to remote farmer communities through direct interactions, and in doing so, enable farmer community awareness. To this end, it will actively create a community of likeminded organisations and individuals that contribute to the AgriUT ecosystem and support the growth of smallholder farmers worldwide.

Through the sale of AgriUT tokens, the Foundation will build and maintain a pool of assets which will be invested into social impact projects or other services that serve to support smallholder farming communities and that grow the AgriUT ecosystem.

The Utility Token

The AgriUT token is designed to facilitate and promote farmer appreciation in the form of Agriwards and to drive the economic development of smallholder farming communities around the world.

There will be a fixed supply of AgriUT minted at the token generation point with a portion of those tokens available to purchase in bundles during the pre-sale.

Tokens purchased in the pre-sale will be subject to a lockup period preventing transfer of ownership except in the form of Agriwards, which will be encourage by allowing tokens to be unlocked early for those who meet the minimum Agriwards requirements.
