The disruption of the pandemic helped us realise the importance of digital markets and electronification of agricultural commodity markets. The launch of A2Z was most timely and essential with the sudden fall of prices as high as 30%. Through A2Zgodaam.com Arya could offer the farmers comprehensive solutions – get commodities, aggregate it, store, avail a finance and even sell, when prices improved. More than 1500 dispersed warehouse owners listed their warehouses on the platform, a2zgodaam. The company was further able to connect FPOs and smaller aggregators with buyers through the platform. Arya also helped sellers of agri-commodities avoid distress liquidation of stock by disbursing over INR 100 Crores of credit through its NBFC subsidiary, Aryadhan Financial Solutions, during this period.
Arya’s ability to use technology to create a transparent digital platform and AI for quality assurance with a 24-48 hour turnaround time for warehousing and finance has been beneficial to everyone in the value chain.

“We will continue to strengthen our work on use of AI on quality and establish a nationwide quality standard for agricultural commodities. We are already working on a data driven machine learning tool for price mitigation for smallholder farmers and we hope to strengthen it for everyone’s benefit”, adds Prasanna Rao, Co-founder of Arya.
