Farmhut is the biggest straight from the farm marketplace in Zimbabwe. It is an online platform whose mission is to disrupt the food supply systems across Africa. Farmhut supports women smallholder farmers to attain productivity and profitability. Over a third of the food grown by farmers never gets to the table and goes to food waste. This can be stopped by the development of smart market infrastructure that allows farmers to place their produce for sale before they even finish harvesting ensuring that there are no losses that occur post-harvest due to lack of markets.
We have developed a mobile application and a fully functional website and databases with a growing customer base each ad every day. This, complemented by social media chatbots and automated generated SMS that are free to access for the smallholder farmer through USSD.
We are a diverse, passionate team of young energetic people who are always keen to improve the startup.
