New online platform launched in Nigeria that will connect producers to buyers, markets and processors

De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) has teamed up with Nigerian data company Microscale Embedded and University of Ilorin in Nigeria to develop and launch a new online platform that will connect producers to buyers, markets and processors across Nigeria.

The digital platform AVAC (Agricultural Value Chain) will allow farmers to get location-based information on processors, transporters, markets and distribution. The Knowledge Transfer Project (KTP) has been funded by Innovate UK through a grant of more than £140,000. KTPs connect forward thinking businesses with university expertise to solve a specific, strategic innovation challenge faced by a business.
