This partnership will strive to reduce the multi-billion dollar food losses that occur yearly due to insufficient and inadequate post-harvest infrastructures in sub-Saharan Africa.
The venture will leverage CNFA’s proximity to thousands of smallholder farmers in Africa with GSI’s technologies for grain and perishable storage.
GSI, a global brand of AGCO, is a manufacturer of grain storage, material handling, conditioning and drying equipment, and a supplier of swine and poultry production equipment.
The partners released the following statement: “This partnership can dramatically improve smallholder farmers’ incomes and nutritional status by reducing their post-harvest losses. This can result in new and innovative approaches to address food losses.
“We believe that our partnership can significantly impact millions of rural households’ food security and help strengthen the local economy,” it read.
