Farmers Fresh Zone (Farmers FZ), an agricultural food start-up, has received recognition from the United Nations for its unique module and practices, the company said on Monday. 

The UN hosted the SDG Agri-food Accelerator programme and Farmers Fresh Zone was one of the startups to get selected by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN during the meet held in Rome recently. 

"Farmer's Fresh Zone stood out for its unique module and practices which are scalable in any part of the world," a company statement here said. 

"India is the second largest country in agriculture production and we, at Farmers Fresh Zone, are super proud to represent as the only one from India at a global forum," AgriTech D2C and (farm-to-fork as a SaaS) CEO Pradeep P S said. 

Under this programme, Farmers FZ would receive grants and other funds to make the necessary changes needed for each market, helping them widen their reach and making the business global, the release said. 

The company claims that the fruits and vegetables are traceable and ordered from its platform. Farmers associated with the platform follow good agricultural practices under regular supervision. You can get information about the produce, farmer, and farming methods just by scanning a QR code. 

Kochi-based start-up was among the 12 agriculture-based companies selected across the globe by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of UN.
