Kakaxi connects farmers directly with consumers to bring the story behind our food to the table.
Kakaxi connects farmers directly with consumers to bring the story behind our food to the table.

It's important to enjoy your food. Knowing where food comes from makes food taste better. Kakaxi provides ultimate transparency in food for organic and local food lovers. Our platform helps integrity driven farmers connect with more consumers.

The Kakaxi project aims to:

  • Create a platform to foster direct communication between farmers and consumers.
  • Help farmers share the story behind the food they produce.
  • Enhance the mealtime experience by helping consumers understand the story behind food production.

Additionally,  through the on-site smart farm-monitoring device, farm vitals and images are also transmitted to the users.  




With KAKAXI, consumers will be able to share their feedback on the food directly with their farmers. They can upload recipes and photos of the meals they create, thereby forging a stronger bond between farmer and consumer.  
This feedback will empower sustainable farmers to continue their passion  and inspire more people to become farmers. Kakaxi strives to nurture an appreciation for sustainable farming in present and future generations.

Risks and challenges

The smart farm-monitoring devices deployed to the farms are heavily affected by the weather, so there may be situations (early on) in which they do not accurately gather or transmit information effectlvely.

In addition, since we are starting a new "farm2table" social networking service, it is difficult to project the level of engagement in the product until a critical mass of farmers and consumers have been acquired as customers.

There is a risk that the farmers and consumers do not engage with the product as much as anticipated.
