Online Procurement

AFASA links its members to markets through its current procurement platform where it actively secure markets for various farm products to be supplied to food manufacturers, retailers, food exporters and companies in the food service industry, giving farmers access to the whole value chain.
Online procurement platform.

The primary purpose of AFASA’s online procurement platform is to digitally link African Farmers with the formal markets. This need is necessitated by the challenge of accessing markets by smallholder farmers due to high volumes required by the markets. Therefore, the online platform allows for multiple farmers in one community or geographical region to contribute to bulk orders from a variety of different clients. Thus, putting to action the power of collective and aggregate marketing. The platform guarantees emerging farmers a sustainable income and allows them to plan and grow their business.
