AAA baseline survey in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda: Contributing to business improvement
Simone van Vugt and Floor Peters of the AAA Project office visited 26 member companies and 25 farmers they source from during the baseline survey held in March/April 2014.
The member companies visited include Banana Investment Ltd., Shaffi Sunflower oil mills, Choice Coffee Limited, AKM Glitters Company, Ringo Consalidated Co.Ltd, Three Sisters oil Ltd., Natureripe Kilimanjaro Ltd., Dina Flowers Ltd., Meru Agro Tours and Consultancy Ltd., Farmer Support Ltd., Sulma Foods Ltd., Savannah Ltd., Shalom Fish farms, Geoffman Enterprises Ltd., Farmers Centre Ltd., NECPA, Soleil Enterprises Ltd, Dryland seed Ltd., Nalai farm ltd., KENFAP services Ltd., Happy cow dairies, Food chain millers Ltd., Agriquest laboratories and Meru greens.
For every company visited, we engaged with farmers who work hand in hand with the companies in order to understand the kind of relationships they have with each other. All the companies visited work mainly with farmers who either provide the raw materials or are end users of their products.
They in one way or another have both benefitted from bounty harvests as a result of the extension services they receive from the companies.
Simone and Floor are elated with the outcomes of the trip and will be sharing the report on their findings to the members soon. AAA would like to extend its warm welcome again in future.
