The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) awarded the Innovation 2022 prize to the Chinese platform Pinduoduo for its technological innovations in agricultural systems management and emissions reduction.
Today, Pinduoduo is China’s largest agricultural e-commerce platform linking small-scale farmers to the market. Thanks to it, millions of farmers can improve their livelihoods while bringing healthy, sustainable food to consumers. Currently, more than 16 million farmers use the platform to sell their products to 880 million consumers.
The FAO Innovation Award recognises breakthrough innovations that have effectively contributed to an area of work related to FAO’s mandate and that drive changes in the way food is produced, processed, marketed and consumed, leading to more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agri-food systems.
