AGRO-HUB

AGRO-HUB is a startup venture setup to combat poverty among rural farmers by addressing the expressed need to boost demand for their products and earn more money from their laborious efforts and investments in the fields. We strive to achieve this through innovative use of the web and mobile technology to drive demand and distribution of the farmers’ products.

Our agricultural market development strategy involves partnering with [rural] farmers to source products and information for newly sort out local and international markets. Sourcing of products is done through setting up of collecting centers [or storehouses] within rural communities while sourcing of information is done through provision of SMS based tools and knowledge farmers need to access and share information about their activities. The information sourced from the farmers thereof is used on the web to attract consumers for their products.

Our business will be primarily wholesale to local restaurants and boarding schools, exportation and retail to the public through registered franchises. Sourcing foods directly from the [rural] farmers allows us to pick from the finest selection of food crops available in Cameroon. Our core values rest in our commitment to quality, freshness, hygiene, and great prices to our customers – as by partnering with farmers, we will be able to pass on the savings on to our customers.
