The ability to deal with people is as purchasable a commodity as sugar or coffee and I will pay more for that ability than for any other under the sun.
John D. Rockefeller
Every day millions of trades between companies in the agriculture industry are conducted entirely over-the-counter – outside the operation of exchanges. It is impossible to compare prices of your goods without engaging in lengthy negotiations often conducted by phone or by email. ALIRO was born out of a need to streamline this process, and to introduce a central marketplace that would finally allow sellers and buyers of physical commodities to get the best possible price for their goods.
What is ALIRO?
ALIRO is a B2B marketplace for agricultural commodities with integrated tools which allow users to list goods, receive offers, and negotiate contracts fully within the platform. Our users consist of international commodity traders, brokers, producers, distributors, and retail chains – and with our KYC compliance process, we screen each party to certify the quality of our database, and ensure the legitimacy of our users.
In the present days of globalization, free market competition, and commodity future contracts it can be difficult to sell agricultural commodities at a good price. It can be even more difficult to find a realible partner you can trust – and each new negotiation is often preceded by background checks and due diligence done by both parties.
What if finding a new partner was as simple as doing a quick seach in the database?
Why does the search for a better price have to involve so much risk?
We at ALIRO believe that these problems can be solved by introducing a new cetralized global platfrom that can facilitate negotiations and through its own process of due diligence improve trust among players in the marketplace. We want you to be able to access the markets you’re interested in – and to have a piece of mind that the party you’re dealing with has been screened and verified by us.
We strive to streamline and improve the process of trade negotiations, bring more transparency and trust to the commodities marketplace, enable small-and-medium size companies to grow their business, and make the platform an indispensable tool for every company involved in selling or buying commodities worldwide.
We aim to create a transparent commodities marketplace absent of financial speculators, and envision ALIRO as a nexus for international trade used by companies at all levels for decades to come.
