Improving Storage Methods to Reduce Loss

Strengthening the Potato Value Chain in Kenya, funded by Irish Aid, introduced low-cost storage facilities in 2016 and empowered producer groups, entrepreneurs and other value chain actors to reduce post-harvest losses. During the second phase (2017), the project will help producer groups scale up production and facilitate construction of additional storage buildings. Farmer participation and capacity building are central to the project approach.

 

Providing Access to Stable Markets

New storage facilities will provide access to stable markets by creating a
participatory, inclusive value chain for producers. In turn, producers will receive
fair prices and gain a voice in the development process.
