Extron Consults Offering marketplace that connects smallholder farmers with retailers

Extron Consults improves the livelihoods of smallholder farmers and vendors at both ends of the value chain by matching supply with demand while contributing to waste reduction as well as lowering food prices in towns with the approach of leveraging technology to aggregate the requirements of the food-retailers and efficiently sourcing produce directly from farmers through m-commerce platform (Food Bazaar App).
Smallholder-farmers face many challenges that include high post-harvest loses and unpredictable prices for their produce. Over 20% of food-produce distributed to Ugandan markets remains unsold and rots, since vendors cannot forecast a day’s orders and so buy in excess, ultimately, customers and farmers are the ones who cover these costs.
On average, our enrolled farmers and vendors increase their marginal incomes by 40% and 25% respectively compared with their non-enrolled neighbours. We are contributing to reduction of post-harvest losses of produce from 35% to 7% for produc
