Ugandan growers to access global markets through PSFU and Agricycle partnership

In excess of 9,400  young Ugandan growers are set to benefit from a new partnership between Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU), the country’s apex body for the private sector, and Agricyle Global, a social enterprise.

This Sh 6 billion (€1.44 mln) partnership includes a five-year project, “Global Agricultural Market Linkage for Youth and Young Mothers” (Gamlym) that will build new local markets for at least two local youth-led companies. The project will also connect at least eight youth-led companies to global markets through high-level strategic partnerships.

As reported on allafrica.com¸ the partnership is in collaboration with the Mastercard Foundation, as part of its Young Africa Works–Enhancing Lead Firm Structure for Youth Employment in Uganda initiative.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that food losses in sub-Saharan Africa amount to $4 billion annually. The majority of food loss happens between harvest and the point of sale, with less waste by consumers after purchase.
