  • AgroCenta is an online platform that connects the smallholder farmer in the staple food (rice, maize, millet and soybean) value chain to a wider online market to trade, access truck delivery services at the click of a button and also get real-time market information delivered to their mobile phones via SMS and voice services. AgroCenta aims to empower the smallholder farmer financially by eliminating the middlemen or brokers who currently buy their commodities at ridiculously low price and resell in urban areas for massive profits.

    At AgroCenta, our passion and drive to change the face of Agriculture in Africa using technology and innovations is built on four core values:

    1. Ensuring sustainable food security

    2. Livelihood empowerment for smallholder farmers

    3. Job creation

    4. Accelerating growth in agriculture using technology & innovation

     

    Ensuring Sustainable Food Security

    By innovating the agricultural value chain, AgroCenta delivers unrivalled products and services that ensures equal food distribution across the country. AgroCenta eliminates wastage and food glut that arises as a result of a lack of market to trade to by providing smallholder farmers access to a wider online market. Finally AgroCenta connects smallholder farmers to all key stakeholders within the value chain to access agricultural extension advisory services, technical and knowledge skills transfer and agricultural inputs.

    Livelihood empowerment for smallholder farmers

    Smallholder farmers in Africa lose over $30 billion annually to exploitative buyers. These middlemen buy commodities at very cheap prices from smallholder farmers and resell in urban areas to make astronomical profits. Smallholder farmers cannot invest in mechanized farming, purchasing and usage of agrochemical products because they are always at the mercy of the exploitative buyers. By eliminating the middleman approach, AgroCenta connects smallholder farmers to a wider market online to trade fairly and equitably.

    Job creation

    In Africa, agriculture is predominantly an occupation for the aged. Young people shy away from going into farming because of a perceived mindset – It’s a dirty job! AgroCenta is changing this erroneous mindset by making agriculture attractive to the younger generation by including technology and innovations.
