Values in action
We are committed to our industry - with strong partners and strong concepts.
Our values not only guide our actions, we also live by them. With honest commitment and strong partners, we implement projects that support our industry and actively shape its future.
When classic structures in agriculture reach their limits, we help to find more efficient solutions. If there is a lack of social acceptance for a profession, we help to educate people. When the existence of regional businesses is threatened, we help to tackle the problem. This is a matter of honour for us.
To make the importance of every single actor along the agricultural value chain visible, we are launching our Agrando Advent Calendar for the first time in 2020. The 24 doors, worth a total of over 10,000 euros, are as diverse as the agricultural industry itself and hold something exciting for everyone.
As our number of employees grows strongly, so does our responsibility. We conduct our job interviews almost entirely digitally. To compensate for the additional CO2 emissions generated by our application management processes, we have been using "climate-neutral hirings" since November 1 and planting trees for each new team member.
We're helping: whether it's the search for seasonal workers, emergency plans or inspiring examples of solidarity actions - on this page we bundle the most important offers of help that currently support agricultural businesses in the crisis. Farmers have all the important platforms and helpful tips at their fingertips at all times.
When the central sales outlets for plants closed due to the crisis, the processes in the local nurseries were quickly overloaded. The path from traditional ordering, advice, processing and logistics was too costly for the short period of time in which their plants were ready for sale. Agrando followed the call for help from the Landeskuratorium für pflanzliche Erzeugung in Bayern e.V. and developed an efficient business model for the horticultural sector that enables them to achieve more sales in a shorter period of time - even beyond the crisis: the Pflanzenkisterl.
Technologies and knowledge are changing - new opportunities become possible. Together with strong partners in the industry, we develop smart solutions for the agricultural sector. How can we improve the process chain in agricultural trade for all parties involved? What tools do farms need to make their business fit for the future? What information and analyses are needed to make the right decisions? In cooperation with institutions, manufacturers, traders and farmers, we advance our industry with innovative and at the same time practical solutions.
