Increasing market access for produce sourced from African smallholder farmers and expanding food processing capacity on the African continent are key pillars of African agricultural transformation. Currently a projected 60% of key commodities consumed in Africa are sourced from outside of the continent.

How it works,

  • Facilitate establishment of partnerships and business alliances between value chain actors; researchers, extension service providers, anchor-buyers (brands, retailers, regional and domestic companies), financial service providers, farmers, and technical experts, to strengthen value chain linkages and shorten the supply chains.
  • Raise awareness on bottle necks, interventions, investments, and policy revisions to guide the decision making, policy design and programs of governments and development partners.
  • Share knowledge, capacity needs, lessons learned and new opportunities.
