For over 12 years our team has been helping agricultural service providers and their clients meet their financial goals through the creative use of barter.
Who Needs This Solution?

- Suppliers looking for creative alternatives to locate and finance new sales in challenging economical or political environments
- Governments looking to stimulate the adoption of new technologies and practices; while reducing trade deficit risks
- Anyone looking to access new markets
Monetising Excess Capacity
When repaying in barter, a farmer is able to create liquidity from excess production, B-grade products or under-utilised production capacity - without affecting their existing cash sales channels.
Maximising Returns for Buyers and Sellers
Ormita provides buyers and sellers access to a secondary marketplace where non-cash transactions do not need to be bilateral.
A buyer can purchase from 'Party A' and repay by selling goods to 'Party B'.
We work with clients to maximise the value of any sale by placing their stocks, inventories or assets with new clients in markets which will guarantee the greatest returns. When compared to liquidating or destroying excess production, barter is a preferential option for many farmers.
“Businesses often have excess capacity in their own goods, services or infrastructure, even more so when the financial cycle slows and credit tightens. Business people find that using capacity to source needed goods and services is an attractive alternative proposition to conventional sales and credit if it can increase sales, ease cash flow or reduce reliance on conventional credit.”
