The SBEP will work with shea collectors to co-design a journey that will transform them from ad hoc, informal operators, into well-structured small businesses.
Through a market-driven approach, IDH and AgroCenta will work closely with 12 SMEs in maize, rice, and millet supply chains in Northern Ghana (hereafter referred to as ‘prioritized value chains’) to improve business operations, build technical and management capacity, structure sourcing of high-quality grains from smallholder farmers, and to support these SMEs in meeting the buying requirements of large multinational off-takers (such as Nestlé).
