Southern Africa Policy Brief 6 - A programme to mainstream black farmers into supply chains: An emphasis on Fresh Produce
This policy brief forms part of the Recovering Markets study in Southern Africa. It has endeavored to analyse market concentration
in the food processing and retail sectors, as well as to predict future dynamics in the sectors which have emerged as a result
of the restructuring of the food market and the rapid changes taking place in the structure and governance of local, national
and regional agri-food markets and the implications of the changes for small/medium producers in the restructuring of the
food industry, together with the implications for policies and programmes within the context of the agri-food market.
The Regoverning Markets project focused on the modernisation of agrifood markets in emerging economies, and implications for small-scale producers. The goal was to secure more equitable producer and trade benefits in response to those changes. It was a multi-partner collaborative research programme made up of a consortium of some 20 research organisations and funding agencies.
