Advising on good agricultural practice and market access
Good agricultural practices ensure that safe and healthy food is produced that’s environmentally and socially sustainable. Small scale farmers then need the right information to access the best markets to sell their produce at a good price. We promote integrated solutions to solve these issues.
At the core of our work is a team of highly skilled, highly experienced people – agronomists, training and development experts, supply chain specialists and business consultants, all with local and international experience.
Training farmers on the best methods for harvesting and processing
To deliver impacts we facilitate, as well as teach and train. This allows farmers, advisers, technicians and policy-makers to explore their own and collective goal performance, enabling them to self-generate more effective ways of working.
Our ability to combine training and facilitation skills with a culturally-sensitive local presence really sets us apart from other development organizations.
