Under its agribusiness & capacity building framework, Bright Generation has marshaled the technical and financial resources to help address the problem of food security and sustainable agriculture among small-scale rural farmers in Ghana. Through such efforts traditional production and distribution methods have seamlessly being replaced by more closely coordinated and better planned modernized systems thus establishing profitable linkages between farmers, retailers and others in the supply chains. Consequently, our Inclusive participatory model promotes the integration of smallholders into markets, with the underlying principle that there are reciprocated benefits for poor farmers and the business community.
We believe our model ties in with the central issues addressed by FAO's Agribusiness Development Programme, which advises on policies and strategies to improve agribusiness competitiveness, including fostering better coordination and linkages among business partners. Commitment is being made with our collaborating partners to spearhead a novel Agribusiness Incubator Program which will focus on Graduates, Youth and Women Empowerment under an institutionalized system.
