About us

The Agri commodity market is worldwide an essential and interesting market – people will always eat! There is a global continuous increase in demand for food. Today, the big corporates are benefitting heavily, whilst smallholder farmers, suppliers, and buyers are not benefitting from it…yet.

The Indonesian $130Bn agriculture market has been shaken up since the pandemic. The opaque and inefficient supply chain of the smallholder farming ecosystem has shown its fragility during hard times. The smallholder farmers, traders, and suppliers – the Agri #microheroes – have felt this over the years, but truly realized this since the pandemic.

PasarMIKRO is a social enterprise that is determined to empower the Agri #microheroes through platform and digitalisation, to create a resilient and efficient network of the smallholder agricultural supply chain. We’ve picked some of their most pressing problems and developed our solutions revolving around them.

There is no better time than now, to start the change!
