Côte d’Ivoire - Agricultural Value Chain Development Support Programme (PADFA) – November 2021
One of PADFA’s objectives is to create market access for project participants through the local private sector. Ivoire Tahanman Industrie Agroalimentaire (ITIA) is helping five cooperatives of small-scale mango producers supported by PADFA to obtain organic certification. Renewable each year, this certification enables farmers to export their mangoes to Europe for better prices. Furthermore, ITIA also purchases the mangoes that farmers cannot export, processes them locally and sells them in supermarkets in the cities.
The aim of PADFA is to improve post-harvest activities (packaging, storage, processing, and marketing) of three strategic value chains: rice, vegetables and mango. Thus, stimulating economic growth and improving the food and nutritional security and raising the incomes of the smallholder households in the programme area. In addition, PDAFA will mobilize investments by the domestic private sector by promoting cofinancing, risk-sharing mechanisms and other financial products and services to foster the development of private initiatives.
