TechnoServe serves as the manager of the Technical Assistance Facility (TAF), which supports the African Agriculture Fund, a private equity fund, to address food security challenges across Africa. TAF provides technical assistance to small and growing businesses (SGBs) invested in by the African Agriculture Fund, and improves linkages between enterprises and smallholder outgrowers.
TechnoServe is working across five African countries with USAID and Partners in Food Solutions to improve the quality and quantity of nutritious, processed food. In Zambia, we are currently assisting nine processors, with over 37 different technical and business development projects that will increase their capacity and efficiency, and improve the quality and safety of their products.
As an implementing partner of the Zambia Nutrition, Assessment, Counseling, and Support program, TechnoServe is helping to support an innovative program to improve the nutritional status of people living with HIV and developing new market opportunities for local food processors and retailers.
Through a grant made by the Technical Assistance Facility, TechnoServe is helping 500 smallholder soya farmers integrate into the supply chain of Goldenlay, a poultry layer company located in Zambia’s Copperbelt province.
