PizzaProFocus - members meeting

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Netherlands
  02 February 2017, 17:30-19:30
  Utrecht

Tijdens de Members Meeting van 1 november kwam de groep die sprak over 'Linking' met het idee om een maandelijkse meet-up te organiseren, door en voor leden, na werktijd, onder het genot van een stuk pizza: PizzaProFocus!

Het idee is om de informele meet-ups elke laatste donderdag van de maand te houden over actuele onderwerpen die de leden bezighouden. Georganiseerd door AgriProFocus en als gastheer/vrouw een lid organisatie. Bop Innovation Center trapt het spits af en is gastheer tijdens deze eerste meet-up op donderdag 2 februari* met als onderwerp: Een breder perspectief op Inclusive Business

Breder perspectief op inclusive business

Inclusive business is hot! Steeds meer organisaties nemen een inclusive business perspectief aan in hun agri&food en voedselzekerheidsprojecten. De uitvoering hiervan gaat echter vaak niet verder dan de kleine boer. Hoe zorg je ervoor dat je de BoP niet alleen betrekt als kleinschalige boer, maar ook als consument en micro-ondernemer?

'Fresh Assembly Points' as distribution model for fresh produce 

In Africa produce is moved over hundreds of kilometers from rural farmers to urban-based distribution centers. Part of this produce is then moved back to an expanding network of rural retailers. Such distribution models are very difficult to enter for smallholder farmers.

The SPAR Rural Hubs initiative - one of the AIM projects- in South Africa focuses on improving rural community access to fresh produce from smallholder farmers by setting up a new distribution network. 'Fresh Assembly Points' (FAPs), strategically located near farmers, rural retailers and consumers, provide logical alternatives for the produce to travel a shorter distance from farmer to FAP to retailer, thereby reducing cost and preserving freshness longer.

Want to know more about this innovative approach? Listen to Kenneth Carden, project manager of SPAR, who explains it HERE
