Climate change risk analysis for food corporations

The CC RAFCo product aims at providing a flexible solution for food companies and commodity traders to employ Earth Observation and climate information for better decision making and planning. The core focus of the service is on wheat yield forecast but CC RAFCo also aims at delivering a wide range of generic vegetation and agroclimatic indicators through an advanced dashboard. The main users of the service are food companies such as Tesco, Mars, Marks and Spencer, Asda, and Ferrero. Apart from direct use of EO data previously processed into climate models and seasonal forecasting, optical and radar sensors are employed in order to obtain an accurate picture of the crop health and maturity, while also differentiating between crop types and assessment of acreage under each crop which can be used for market forecasts.
