On The Ground
Solutions for African Food Enterprises
As of December 2016, four years into the program, 82 processors have benefited from customized technical assistance through 205 technology and business charters. As a direct result of SAFE’s assistance, these businesses have created 337 jobs, established 95 new market linkages, and sold 55,852 metric tons of improved, nutritious food. Supported food processors have made new investments of over $9.6 million.
SAFE additionally provides sector-wide training to broader processor groups, universities, service providers, and industry bodies to strengthen their knowledge base so they are better able to serve their companies and support the sector. So far, we have conducted 43 trainings in business strategy and planning, and technical areas (e.g. good manufacturing practices, food fortification, processing, aflatoxin control, baking, milling technology). These trainings have reached 1,162 individuals from 883 different processors.
