ZUAMI is an online B2B2C social impact agri-food marketplace that connects smallholder farmers, foodstuff vendors and consumers to make it easier, cheaper and faster to buy and sell foodstuff.
ZUAMI provides market access for smallholder farmers and foodstuff vendors, tackling the high friction and costs of buying and selling foodstuff, food waste and economic instability.
The Nigerian agri-food supply chain is highly fragmented and informal, with multiple inefficient layers of intermediaries, and over 95% of foodstuff sold in open air markets.
This increases cost of food and makes shopping for foodstuff very stressful and time consuming.
In 2019, Nigerian households spent over $37.4B on agri-food, out of which over $14.5B was spent by urban households. ZUAMI is unifying the large fragmented sources of supply into a single network by digitizing the supply chain, making it cheaper and easier to buy and sell foodstuff.
