Creating a more equitable, sustainable and profitable agri-food system

Agri-food industry organisations (AFIOs) play a critical role in strengthening and creating a more competitive agri-food sector. AFIOs, which include associations, unions, apex organisations, and producer organisations, integrate a broad set of value chain actors – from small-scale producers to processors, traders, export markets, and policymakers.

Given their wide reach, AFIOs are an ideal partner to champion reforms and initiatives that lead to a more equitable, sustainable, and profitable agri-food system. Ultimately improving the lives of men and women small-scale producers.
