Smallholder Farmer Integration

TechnoServe’s two-year pilot project in Southern Bahia State helped 60 smallholder farmers to diversify their crops and integrate into the value chain of a leading national agro-processing company, Inaceres. Through an innovative partnership with Inaceres and Institute Ventura, TechnoServe identified a market for hearts of palm, a high-value gourmet delicacy in Brazil.
