Agridence Chairman Ian Potter welcomed: "The RSPO has been a leading player in the drive to make palm oil more sustainable and will be a great partner. With the imminent requirement for traceable supply chains beginning With EUDR, digitalization is imperative for all operators in the space. We are delighted with the opportunity to be part of this important process and are honored that our team and technology have been recognized in this way. This project is based on our progress with traceable rubber and look forward to demonstrating our expertise in agricultural products and product excellence by creating commodity traceability applications for Palm.”

The challenges they face in the palm oil and natural rubber sectors are remarkably similar due to their shared cultivation landscape and market structures. With insights gained from tackling similar challenges, Agridence has been tasked with leading a tripartite consortium of global agritech companies for the digital transformation of the RSPO, merging the best minds in technology and sustainability that will deliver an unprecedented step-change in efficiency, reliability and technological advancement to this tailor-made CTTS, designed to meet the specific needs of sustainable palm oil stakeholders.

Gerald Tan, CEO of Agridence, stated: "This is a unique achievement that is significant on multiple fronts. It demonstrates our capabilities to collaborate and synergize our resources with experts and innovators in the field to develop a unified and optimized system for the sustainable industry. This extension to palm oil affirms recognition and confidence in Agridence, our track record in natural rubber that has provided a robust and secure B2B trading platform, an integrated sustainability dashboard and traceability tools. As we embark on this exciting venture, Agridence remains committed to driving innovation, fostering collaboration and delivering unparalleled value to our customers toward a sustainable future."

Nikki Gee, RSPO Digital Transformation and Strategy Director, shared: “The decision to appoint Agridence as the lead to manage and maintain RSPO systems is driven by a combination of best-in-class solutions that will be able to meet the demands and anticipate the future needs of a sector that is rapidly evolving in line with increasingly strict global regulations. We are confident that Agridence will provide a seamless experience for the RSPO and our members."
