The client provides outlets for the trade in agricultural commodities (from local production and import) to wholesalers. Most of the products are sold to local detailists.
The client is a service provider in the real estate sector and therefore not part of the value chain of agricultural commodities.
The problems to be solved concern the entire value chain from the farmer to the wholesaler. The very big challenges (poor quality, post-harvest losses, short-shelf life, pesticide residues, etc.) result from the lack of good agricultural practice and inefficient logistics. Since the agricultural commodities are sold by the wholesalers to many small retailers, this part of the value chain works quite well.
Together with the market manager, suggestions were developed for setting up a consulting service with three different consultants (crop production, logistics/processing, small businesses). In this way, farmers can be trained in good agricultural practice and provided with the necessary products and services by setting up startups in the upstream and downstream agricultural sector.
These proposals must now be concretised with all stakeholders (farmers and traders) and adapted to their needs.
In addition to these strategic proposals, we have put together a large number of very concrete proposals. Suggestions that can be applied very easily and quickly in practice.
