The concept of cooperative agribusiness is used for producing high quality standardized fresh and dry products for sale to lucrative markets capitalizing on the economies of scale. The cooperative societies thus established, can feasibly coordinate their efforts ensuring quality input and output supply networks to their member farmers. These Cooperatives and Farmer Organizations (FO) also focus on imparting trainings and skills required for capacity building of the farmers necessary for successful implementation of developmental strategies.
By becoming members of farmer cooperatives and organizations smallholders and resource-poor producers can work together to access farming inputs and aggregate produce to reach better markets, while gathering a collective voice in social and policy dialogue. These cooperatives and FOs are then linked to Regional Farmer Organizations continuing up the graduation ladder to Provincial Farmer Networks.
Through these networks offering game changing solutions, farmers can achieve sustainable livelihoods, improve food security and resilience in their communities and play a greater role in meeting the growing demand for food in local, national and international markets.
