VECO supports smallholder farmers to organise themselves and build the necessary capacities to create economies of scale, guarantee quality, food safety and sustainability:
1. We empower groups of farmers to become solid business partners for companies and to implement future-proof farming practices.
2. We connect leaders of farmer organisations with frontrunners from food companies, governments, investors, supermarkets, wholesalers, research institutions, etc. to explore new ways of doing business that can inspire sector-wide change and policy changes within food and retail companies.
3. We develop mechanisms of trust and transparency throughout the value chain to go beyond certification.
Topics on my radar:
Agriculture, Environment, Finance and Investment, Inclusive Business Models, Measuring Impact, Partnerships, Women and Business, Youth Enterprise
