About Kynetix

Our vision, our values and our approach

Relentless increase in global population is creating pressure on world resources. In some places as much as a third of all agricultural output rots in storage before it can be traded, with major impact on the economy and societies.

Our vision

We envision a world in which all parts of the commodities ecosystem can harness technology to reduce waste, corruption and inefficiency for the widest possible societal and economic benefit.

Our values

We believe in doing business honestly, fairly and transparently. It is these beliefs that underpin Sentinel, a system that enables all players in the ecosystem to benefit from increased visibility, security and efficiency.

Our approach

Our pricing models reflect our values and are designed to be ‘win-win’ so that we share risk and reward honestly, fairly and transparently with our clients and partners maximising ROI for all parties.
