  • Ag Innovation

    AG INNOVATION

    “Change is the only constant,” said the Greek philosopher Heraclitus. While markets and preference change over time, technology continues to swiftly change. The first big change was fertilizer. From there it was synthetic pesticides followed by ‘simple’ genetic engineering, genomics, etc.  Similarly, information technology is dramatically altering growers’ lives every day and new business model innovations are increasing value capture.  Our Context business model allows us to be at the leading edge of new technology in whatever forms necessary through an increasingly wide network of experts.  Whether you are evaluating technical feasibility of achieving a research target, developing smoother operating stage gate processes or determining the appropriate R&D portfolio, Context can develop a team to assist.

    FOOD DISTRIBUTION & RETAIL

    Taste, price, and convenience continue to be primary drivers for food shoppers. They also expect greater transparency of where, how and who produces the foods they buy. Some shoppers also consider whether it matches their personal values associated with health, wellness and the environment. Foodservice and retail clients rely on Context to help strategically navigate the realities of food production, processing and distribution, while ensuring standards for a safe, sustainable and affordable supply.

  • Ag Development

    AG DEVELOPMENT

    We are committed to focusing on efforts that effectively overcome the constraints of sustainable, agricultural intensification and market access for smallholder farmers in emerging economies. This allows us to help them realize greater household value from increased cash income, more calories consumed, better nutrition, or resources being freed up for either more lucrative or less volatile uses. Working with donors and private sector partners, we act as advisors, trainers or managers in the core business operations of public-private partnerships that improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in developing countries worldwide.
