The Franzys Marketplace Agriculture Innovation for Food Supply Chain

Food needs to reach its consumers. After tilling, planting, harvesting and through supply to the market to consumers and agribusiness transformers. Africa's biggest problems in the Food-supply-Chain-Process has not always been lack of access to market through poor road infrastructure and education, lack of improved seeds and high yields and also lack of improved techniques but it has over time included lack of access to a reliable and sustainable supply chain system.

Farmers have invested a lot of time and money coupled with expertise on new improved farming techniques and seeds but the major problem has always been food stuffs reaching the real consumers as well as transformers. Reasons why they has been an increase in food wastage in Africa over these years through which investments have increased, techniques have been improved and some governments have provided subsidies to farmers. We of the African food chain need to devise mechanisms to bring food stuff to the end consumers either as fresh or ready-made and processed so they is continuity in consumption.
Our platform is structured in such a way that Made in Africa food stuffs as well as raw materials in the form of fresh fruits, vegetables, processed food stuffs, groceries in general will be channeled to consumers all over the world.

A platform where buyers will meet sellers and vise versa in which trade and exchange of resources is assured. Farmers and agribusiness transformers, food companies would advertise their products to world consumers as well as African consumers so farmers in Africa get benefits from their activities and not rely on community or national markets and in which through our facilitation, real buyers will get trade with real sellers and we will facilitate the transactions through ads, mediation and enforce supply, distribution and shipping exports to buyers all over the world.
