Revitalizing Grain Collection Centers

TechnoServe is supporting the grain and cereals value chain in northern Uganda through our work with World Food Programme (WFP) collection centers. WFP centers have great potential to improve the grain and cereal marketing infrastructure in this post-conflict environment; however, they are currently being utilized at only 10 to 20 percent capacity. TechnoServe has developed business plans to improve the operations of ten satellite collection centers, and will be working on business plans for the remaining 23 satellite collection sites. We are also helping to coordinate the operations of WFP’s six market collection centers, with capacity of 2,000 metric tons each.
