About

Our Mission

The Homni Team is on a mission to identify and co-generate competitive supply chains that will transform agriculture into the leading industry for social, environmental and economic sustainability. 

Just as the steam engine and assembly line led to the industrial revolution, blockchain and 5G can be used to spark an agricultural revolution. The tools, resources and motivation exist, now they must be organized. 

current technologies are capable of converting small-hold farming operations into highly connected global, farm to table enterprises to overcome the barriers which have for centuries limited their potential


Our Vision

Within the next three years, we will help establish a multi-million-dollar, internationally competitive, supply chain that generates net-positive returns for society, the environment, and the market.
