As we provide Agricultural Productivity Enhancement and Commercialization services; we ensure to provide support in development of value chain mapping action plans of the selected commodities. Our value chain mapping usually includes analysis of the value chains from the point of inception to a consumer and identifying opportunities and constraints for value addition. Our analysis always involves consultation with chain actors, supporters and stakeholders along with support of the legal, regulatory and policy environment. Our approach to such assignments in a mapping exercise is structured such that it ends in a workshop with chain actors, supporters and stakeholders that will develop action plans to address constraints and enhance the available opportunities in the value chain.
We also support value chain actors in in implementing their action plans using innovative approaches particularly through commercialization of elements which includes; providing support to crops with market demand, producing to market determined specification, rural commerce, marketing, and agribusiness development for the selected commodities. We support in the production and standardization of training materials. Our agribusiness service to clients involves re-orientation of research and extension in order to complement traditional production oriented approaches with commercially oriented activities responding to market requirements, producer expressed needs, and responding to other value chain actors business concerns.
We are a trusted partner with management of matching grants, an element in project management that has proven to be highly problematic.
