The Seam, a leading provider of agribusiness software and trading solutions, is now an affiliate member of Field to Market, an alliance for sustainable agriculture dedicated to defining, measuring and advancing the sustainability of food, fiber and fuel production.
“We are excited to join Field to Market to begin integrating sustainability metrics and associated algorithms from the Fieldprint Platform into The Seam’s agribusiness software products,” said Mark Pryor, chairman and CEO at The Seam. “Combined with blockchain technology, these integrations provide us with a powerful new tool set for delivering provable sustainability attestations, selective transparency, data security and privacy through a comprehensive platform.”
Field to Market began in 2006 as a conversation on sustainability between agricultural supply chain stakeholders. It has now built a diverse group of more than 125 members representing all facets of U.S. agriculture.
The organization’s Fieldprint Platform, which links all points on the agricultural value chain, is a pioneering assessment framework that empowers brands, retailers, suppliers and farmers, to measure the environmental impacts of commodity crop production and identify opportunities for continuous improvement at every stage in their sustainability journey.
The Seam joins several of its other affiliated agribusiness partners – Cotton Incorporated, the National Cotton Council and the American Peanut Council – as Field to Market members.
