The digital platform for product transparency

We transform your proven impact into a USP.

Our Statement

Our goal is to make sustainable consumption the norm - rather than the exception. We envision a future in which every product can be traced back to its roots. Where the people making the products we consume do profit from their work without harming our planet.

The problem to solve

Inspired by the great pride farmers took in their sustainable production processes and opportunities created for their communities in Kenya, Malawi and South Africa, Kathi (CEO of Seedtrace) discovered an overarching problem.

Many sustainable businesses and farmers are lacking the tools to actually tell the full story of their products. To enable these at scale, a technological solution was needed and the idea of Seedtrace was born.

To us, transparency is the key to sustainable production and consumption and we are working hard to give companies the right tools to achieve exactly that. Companies are using our platform to manage, prove and communicate social and environmental impact to their customers and consumers.
