Value Chains

AgroBIG applies a value chain approach, addressing the bottlenecks that hamper the value chain actors get the best from their efforts.

The Programme supports input suppliers, farmers, brokers, processors, wholesalers, retailers and producer and consumer cooperatives and service providers, with increasing attention to the downstream of the value chains, to add value to the produce they deal with, to find and familiarize with profitable markets and new market segments for their produce, and thereby improve competitiveness and profitability of their business initiatives.

AgroBIG will continue to support four value chains that were attended to during the first phase of the Programme during 2013-2017: onion, potato, rice and maize. Another four additional value chains have been included during Phase II: tomato, dairy milk, goat and sheep fattening and production of eggs and poultry meat.
