The role and challenges of the private sector in enabling market access for smallholders

Code: 9781786769688
John Logan, TechnoServe, Kenya

Chapter synopsis: Sourcing from smallholder farmers presents a number of challenges, stemming from the informal ecosystem in which individual farmers operate as well as from the diverse and fragmented nature of smallholders as a group. The three main types of challenges are: technical, logistical and behavioural. If these challenges are not fully understood and addressed, schemes to source produce from smallholders will fail. This chapter reviews these challenges and ways they can be overcome.
