At the One-Stop Shopping event, the Agri-ProFocus network saw the launch of the book: Challenging Chains to Change – Gender Equity in Agricultural Value Chain Development. Produced by the Royal Tropical Insititute and sponsored by ICCO, Hivos, Cordaid and Oxfam Novib, the book is the result of a writeshop process organised by Agri-ProFocus.
YamBEEji Ltd., a Zambian agri-business that specialises in rice and honey production, has just managed to sign a big deal with Alternative Investments. Over the past years, SNV and the Agri-Hub coordination team have supported YamBEEji in its development. Now, it is reaping the fruits of its growth; not just for itself, but even more for its smallholder suppliers.
