On episode 59 of the FoodGrads we interviewed Pedro Medina, Founder & Chief Data Farmer at Haystack Data Solutions. Haystack is a certified minority-owned technology solutions provider for food & agricultural businesses. Since 2014, they have been committed to solving their clients’ toughest challenges. Their mission is to help agri-food companies realize the power, potential, and value of data by developing effective solutions that bring growth to their bottom line, help feed the world, combat climate change, and expand opportunities for women and data scientists of color. They were also recently recognized with ‘Best in Baking Award’ at the International Baking Industry Exposition for their notable achievements that foster better plant efficiency, improved bakery formulas, streamlined operations and otherwise drive continued growth of the baking industry.

On this week’s episode Pedro and Veronica talked about Haystack and what they are doing to help food producers, processors and distributors. They talked about Pedro’s career journey and how he got to where he is today. Because this podcast’s episode is themed around data Veronica asked Pedro what exactly is data and how it is used in the food industry. They chatted about why he believes the food industry has been slow to adopt digital technologies and how Haystack is helping them take their data analytics from Excel to non-coding softwares like Kelva.
