Together with our partners, TechnoServe is helping to grow strong markets that create opportunities for enterprising people in the developing world.

Partners in Food Solutions-TechnoServe Alliance

The Partners in Food Solutions (PFS)-TechnoServe Alliance matches the expertise of leading global food companies with the needs of African-based food processing companies in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia.


Technical Assistance Facility

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.


Improving Food Security

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.


Commercializing Therapeutic Food Supplements

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.


Providing Market Linkages for Smallholder Soya Farmers

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.
