DiMuto, a Singapore-based supply chain platform  has raised an undisclosed amount of investment from government-owned venture firm SGInnovate to help drive its expansion into new overseas markets.



With its Track and Trace platform, DiMuto provides end-to-end supply chain visibility for global businesses. It leverages blockchain, internet of things, and AI to help digitize the agrifood supply chain.

Hsien-Hui Tong, head of venture investing at SGInnovate told Thailand Startup News,  “Food security, safety, and provenance are some of the biggest issues in the global food system today. DiMuto seeks to tackle these issues with blockchain-based solutions that can bring greater transparency to the agrifood supply chain.”

The startup proprietary digital asset creation devices tag each fruit and carton with QR labels. Data such as relevant trade documents are then associated with the product information and uploaded onto its trade platform, helping reduce disputes over quality and creating trust among trade parties.

The startup claims to have tagged over 30 million fruits, as well as tracked and traced over US$100 million worth of agrifood trades to date. It has a global portfolio of clients in seven countries, including the US, China, Indonesia, Australia, and Mexico.

The company plans to use the new funds to capitalize on its global growth momentum and drive its expansion into markets such as Europe and Latin America in the next few months, according to a statement.

DiMuto was recently named as one of the nine startups in Tribe Accelerator’s second cohort, where the blockchain-focused startup enabler claims to have helped participating companies raise a total of about US$15.7 million.
