The world generates loads of data every day in the course of our social and economic lives, and this represents an unprecedented opportunity. The use of such data as transactions, mobile network metadata, supply chain traces—all anonymized—is unlocking the ability to observe and understand whole value chains and food systems in action, and engaging with a speed and scale in building the resilient food systems that the world needs.
