Inclusive Business Models workshop

Four AAA members participated at the Inclusive Business Models workshop in Amsterdam, organised under the Seas of Change banner. The workshop was organized by Wageningen UR CDI and Sustainable Food Lab on the 12th and 13th of February.

 

The members that participated in the workshop were Elias Geneti Simma President Chambre of Commerce Addis Abeba & Depasa Agro Industry, Yared Sertse, Shayashone Management Consult Ethiopia, Jean Kaahwa, MD Shalom Fish Farm Limited, Uganda, Elijah Kangara, GM Star Cafe Limited, Uganda.

 

Inclusive Business is an exciting concept. It offers a vision of thoughtfully designed trade that includes those typically left on the outside of formal commerce and brings much needed benefits to small farmers and workers while maintaining competitiveness. For businesses, it can be an opportunity to secure and improve existing supply chains with smallholders, and to build new supply sources with brand, reputation, and sometimes cost advantages while contributing to social impact.

 

The workshop summary and the story of Elijah are attached. The workshop report will follow end of April.
