Nyangorora Banana Processors Limited
By providing relatively simple value addition to a common staple, we have helped around 580 individuals improve their income by offering fair trade prices and free training on business management basics, climate change mitigation and adaptation, banana cultivation and marketing. We’ve reduced the farming community’s reliance on brokers and traders, which often used predatory pricing to offset the risk of post-harvest loss, ultimately closing the door to economic development for suppliers. Nyangorora Banana Processors (NBP) is an excellent example of how value-added agriculture products can improve livelihoods. Although NBP is working hard to expand national distribution in the short term, our overriding long-term goal is to reach export markets.
