Food Origins will provide IOT devices to companies that utilize labor to hand harvest fruits and produce. Food Origins will also provide unique labels that can be pre-applied to packaging. Employees will scan bar codes in the field registering the location, package, and employee ID. This data is passed via the cloud to provide information regarding the progress of the harvest, the density of the production in the field, and the velocity of the harvest. Farmers and marketers will have logistical data to ensure they have sufficient crew to complete the harvest and market for the sale of the product.
The same data will enable retailers and consumers to understand the freshness, food miles and source of the produce. The data will also allow precision comprehension of who and where the produce was originated during food safety call-outs.
The same data will also be utilized to communicate the productivity information of the harvesters. Food Origins will provide an employee portal...

Recommendations

Sarah Nolet Founder and CEO at AgThentic

Nathan is extremely knowledgeable about, and well connected in, the industry. He also takes a practical, results-focused approach to delivering technology solutions to customers. Food-Origins is solving a real problem with a customer-centric approach that avoids tech-push. Definitely a business to watch.

Rob Trice Founder at The Mixing Bowl

I have been tracking Food Origins for over three years now. Led by its insightful CEO, Nathan Dorn, the company has a keen understanding of what is needed to take fresh produce precision to the next level.

Drew Taylor

Nathan is exactly the type of person that the world needs starting more food & ag tech businesses. He combines great technical acumen with deep on-the-ground experience. Food Origins is a solution that's born out of a first-hand relationship with the problem, and I can't imagine a person better-equipped to bring this concept to scale than Nathan.

Errol Arkilic

Food Origins is tackling one of the real challenges in precision agriculture: farm-to-table chain control. Their solution provides a comprehensive dashboard that is unmatched; a tool which promises to become an industry standard.

David Murray

Nathan Dorn and Richard Sowers are dedicated innovators who understand the nuances of agriculture. Collecting real-time, location specific productivity data would provide agricultural operators a view into their business that has up to now, been unachievable.
