Who are Bx?

The Bx Group is a Climate-Tech business with a mission of reversing climate change. We are achieving this by creating software to enable total transparency in the supply chain to transform the food system from farm to plate.

We do this by building tools to help growers and food produce manufacturers to manage their operations efficiently and sustainably whilst continuously improving the health of their business’s ecosystem. We combine agronomy insights with data science to optimise farms for carbon sequestration and long-term productivity. We also provide consumers with reliable provenance information on the full lifecycle environmental impacts of the food they consume, stored transparently and immutably on the world’s most environmentally friendly blockchain.

Within the Bx Group we have access to the UK’s most forward-thinking top fruit growers and agronomists, giving us a unique opportunity to incubate our products on working farms. Our aim is to fundamentally disrupt the food industry, delivering better produce and information to consumers, and better incentives for growers to care for the natural environment.

At Bx we believe that exceptional performance is achieved by nurturing a culture underpinned by psychological safety, kindness, honest and open communication and the right to take measured risks and learn from failures. Our approach to leadership is to enable our team to be highly autonomous with a decentralised approach to decision-making with durable and realistic goals for teams and each of our people.
