We are a team that transforms reality.
We seek to understand, challenge, create, and never stop learning, because we see knowledge as the foundation of everything. We practice kindness, and at the same time, we are proud of our potential and of making things happen. We believe that form follows function, but we pay attention to details because we know they can make a difference.
We are convinced that knowledge and technology can help solve humanity’s enormous challenges, including achieving global food security. By 2050, there will be 9.6 billion inhabitants on Earth, and despite the growing demand for food, cultivable land has only increased by 1% in the last 25 years.
In addition, climate change makes it even more difficult to predict and control crops, and it is increasingly difficult to find labor willing to work in the fields. That’s why we created Manglar, to help improve agricultural productivity and transform this reality.
How did we get here?
It all started in 2016 when we began exploring IoT for flower crops and AI for banana crops. In 2017, we launched the first product for sugarcane, and in just two years, we managed to reach more than half of the Colombian sugar mills and secure our first major client in Mexico for our specialized agave solution. In 2020, we created the algorithms, models, and processes for ultra-high resolution, which allowed us in subsequent years to conquer almost the entire sugar cane market in Colombia and double our operation in Mexico.
