Posted by Roxana Elliott on February 4, 2015

GeoPoll, the world’s largest real-time mobile survey platform, is announcing a strategic partnership with Control Union, global leader in agricultural certifications, food safety, and sustainability.  Partnering allows Control Union to tap into GeoPoll’s multimodal mobile platform and database of 200 million users, giving them access the fastest and most cost effective data collection method available in emerging markets.

Together, GeoPoll and Control Union will utilize mobile surveys to engage and educate smallholder farmers in emerging economies in Africa and Asia, with the goal of reaching 1 million farmers by 2020 via SMS and voice messaging.  The partnership will allow commercial organizations such as global brands, exporters, and suppliers, as well as governments and non-profits to ensure social compliance in key value chains and to empower farmers to gain greater access to markets, ultimately adding value for both farmers and consumers.
