Outgrower Business Models in Ghana
THEME: Facilitating Links from Rural to Urban Parts of a Supply Chain
DATE: Monday, March 27
TIME: 10:15 AM
LOCATION: Ballroom 3
Surveys amongst commodity buyers in Ghana have shown that the demand for maize, paddy rice and soybean are far from met in the country that imports most of its milled rice, maize and soymeal. To address this issue, USAID/Ghana’s ADVANCE project has established an outgrower business model (OBM) to increase production and link rural farmers to urban markets and processors. The OBM reinforces the capacities of commercial farmers and firms to provide mechanization, extensions services, and improved inputs to smallholder farmers. Participants will learn how outgrower businesses models can provide a vital link between producers and consumers through an interactive presentation that allows participants to engage with the tools created by the project, such as training manuals, market intelligence reports, and tablet based extension services apps.
