InfoCorp Partners Green Delta Insurance Company for Pilot Project to Deploy Tamper-Proof Livestock Identification Technology
“T his is a significant event introducing livestock identification and indexing service in Bangladesh to deliver social and economic empowerment to cattle farmers in the country with 25 million (2.5 crore) cattle population.”
Spectra Convention Centre, Dhaka, Bangladesh, 14 February 2019, 11 a.m.: InfoCorp Technologies partners Green Delta Insurance (GDIC) to carry out a joint-pilot in Bangladesh with the use of InfoCorp’s FarmTrek app for registration of livestock and livestock owner identity, issuance and storage of livestock insurance policies and tracking and identification of livestock via the use of NFC collar livestock tag.
The partnership is sealed with an Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between both companies by Mr. Roy Lai, Founder and CEO of InfoCorp Technologies and Ms. Farzana Chowdhury, Chartered Insurer, Managing Director and CEO of GDIC. In attendance were some 20+ carefully selected editors and journalists from Bangladesh’s leading publications across newspapers, TV channels, radios and online portals.
This partnership — between Bangladesh’s largest general insurance company, promoting livestock insurance and the world’s first blockchain company that created a platform for livestock-backed financial services — is one that promises high social and economic impact by unlocking the capital in cattle for cattle farmers in Bangladesh, home to 25 million cattle population.
“Green Delta Insurance is embarking on a high-tech route to enable the issuance of livestock insurance that will bring huge socio-economic benefits to farmers in Bangladesh,” said Farzana Chowdhury, adding, “When we can introduce holistic solutions that bring economic benefits for society, it is also good for business”.
“We are very excited to be partnering with GDIC to bring our blockchain platform to Bangladesh, our second market after our entry into Myanmar in 2018.” expressed Mr. Roy Lai, adding, “We believe that this partnership will create a financial ecosystem solves the risk of livestock insurance by addressing such issues as identity and asset ownership frauds, data security and credit security risks. This potentially transforms the market into a force for development by enabling the use of livestock as collaterals.”
