Good enterprise in the food sector is essential for food security and economic growth in Africa. A network of small- and medium-sized African enterprises that are coaching and stimulating each other, has proven to be very helpful.
Wageningen UR initiated this network, supported by private and public sponsors. The collaboration within this network indirectly improves the market for over a million smallholder farmers. These farmers increase their food production and their income. This is how Wageningen UR contributes to the quality of life.
