East Africa smallholder farmers to benefit from new trading platform

10 March 2015

Smallholder farmers in the East Africa will soon be able to track movement of their produce from warehouses.

Smallholder farmers in the East Africa will soon be able to track movement of their produce from warehouses. The trading platform, dubbed G-Soko, will be used to automate certified warehouses and link them to a transactional e-trade platform that will involve agents within the supply chain. The technology launched by FoodTrade East and Southern Africa (ESA) was one of two other investment projects that aim at enhancing the regional staple foods trade. One major reason for food insecurity in this East Africa is poor exchange of food across the region, with smallholder farmers lacking markets for their produce.
