Twiga Foods is a Kenyan company that uses a mobile business-to-business (B2B) platform to connect smallholder farmers to informal urban produce markets and enhance the supply chains that link them. Twiga is expanding its network of rural collection centers, where it aggregates produce from smallholder farmers, from the existing eight to 33. By expanding its network, Twiga is providing a market for more farmers, and is providing urban vendors with better and more affordable produce to sell. Twiga's innovative B2B platform generates rich data that will further improve its processes. Twiga hopes to ultimately replicate its model in other African cities with suboptimal supply chains for fresh produce from rural smallholder farmers.
Outcome: Twiga will increase the number of smallholder farmers from which it sources by 7,500.
