The agricultural revolution (defined as the moments in history when communities of hunter-gatherers in multiple geographies around the world started farming and then embraced all the lifestyle changes that came with it, eventually transforming into modern city states and nations led by bureaucrats and the military) has been dated by historians to be approximately 10,000 to 12,000 years old. As humanity tries its best to create, process, transport and consume food sources with as minimum wastage as possible, it is prudent to reason that we need to do a lot more.
Technology has been a disruptor and continues to be so; with its importance being felt in co-ordinating for every human need and wish. From energy and mobility to agriculture and consumer products, we’re seeing enterprises, both old and new led by start-ups, imagine ever more ways to make things better and efficient. We stand today amidst an age of transition where old ways of going about managing production and distribution are being reworked as we speak.
