China's New Push for Food Security

The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the fragility of food supply chains across the globe. In response, the Chinese government announced it will develop plans to ensure it has adequate food supplies for the short, medium, and long terms. As the largest consumer and producer of agricultural products, the policies China adopts will have profound effects on agricultural industries around the world this year and for decades to come.

It will be crucial for any business involved in agriculture to not only understand the issues involved, but to have an up-to-date, constantly evolving view of the situation - especially since the volatile political climate could cause a drastic change in trade flows at any moment.

Gro Intelligence has developed a new type of data-powered market intelligence—Gro Real-Time Assessments—dynamic assessments that contextualize data and world-leading predictive models, and are always up to date.

Gro Real-Time Assessments are powered by the Gro platform, which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to ingest and normalize data from more than 40,000 datasets and generate analytics and forecasts documenting every facet of agriculture. 

Unlike static reports based on snapshot-in-time data, Gro Real-Time Assessments update continuously in the Gro web application as the platform gathers new data and generates forecasts. The assessments are up to date as of the moment they are viewed, and help Gro users connect the dots more clearly than ever before.

Gro’s Real-Time Assessment of China’s Food Security includes:

  • Analysis of the short-, medium- and long-term policies proposed
  • Cash and retail price indices for grains, oilseeds, and meats
  • Displays for monitoring Chinese domestic production
  • Balance sheets and trade flows for key commodities

This Real-Time Assessment is available exclusively to Gro Enterprise API clients. If you would like to discuss an Enterprise API trial, including access to the China Food Security Real-Time Assessment, please don’t hesitate to get in touch
