Rab Processors Ltd. is working with ACE to strengthen the soybean, groundnut, maize, and pigeon pea value chains in Malawi by establishing three rural marketing and storage facilities and a warehouse receipts program to ensure smallholder farmers can maximize market prices. ACE will provide community outreach and training on warehouse receipts to 15,000 smallholder farmers. Rab will also develop a five-year business plan indicating how the marketing and storage facilities will be profitable and commercially viable, as well as plans for expansion across agricultural value chains and geography.
Outcome: Rab Processors Ltd. will procure more than 10,000 MT of agriculture commodities through three rural marketing and storage facilities. 9,000 smallholder farmers will benefit from this market opportunity and access to storage, with 15,000 smallholder farmers trained on the warehouse receipts program.
