We are attentive to your needs to improve your supply chains:

We mainly address companies that trade agricultural raw materials or use in their production processes. We know that they often face various problems:

 

  • You may want to differentiate your products by highlighting a particular origin. You then need to identify the right partners able to provide you with the volumes that meet your needs;

  • You may need to strengthen operational practices throughout the production chain so that the quality of the products received meets your standards;

  • You want to satisfy the the demand of your customers and highlight practices that respect the planet, treat producers fairly and allow them to improve their live.


Thanks to our long experience of agriculture in Africa and Asia , we are able to advise you in order to define the most suitable strategy and programs.

We are strengthening your presence in the field to improve your supply chains:

  • Identify, organize, train and support networks of producers and suppliers;

We propose a 4-point approach to develop your supply chains:

Famboléna offers a four-point approach:
 

  •  An upstream reflection with your teams to define the best strategy to improve the company's supply chains or to take into account its Social & Environmental Responsibilities.

  • An evaluation on the field in collaboration with the various actors of the sector to assess the potential and agricultural practices, the procedures in place along the production chain, the capacities and the skills of partners as well as logistical and administrative constraints. The objective is to analyze the gap between the starting situation and your vision. At the same time, we explain this vision and policy  to share it with your local partners.

 

  • The writing, in collaboration with your teams, of an action plan which can cover crops productivity, strengthening of the producers organizations’ capacities, organization of the logistic to purchase, transport and condition the products, implementation of traceability, quality control procedures and support to rural communities...

​​

  • The support for the implementation of this action plan. Our intervention can includes the search for technical and financial partners, regular missions to support operators on the field, support to certifications processes and carry out of evaluations and studies of impact.

 

We could also gather information and write reports to feed the company's communication.

We carry out your studies on agrifood chains:

Famboléna carries out assignments on behalf of professional organizations, international funding or cooperation organizations. In such context, we can mobilize additional skills by joining forces with partners. Famboléna and its partners can carry out:

 

  • Feasibility studies to analyze the potential of an agricultural sector and the drafting of recommendations and master plan;

  • Definition of programs and action plans for the development of agricultural chains;

  • Base-line studies and ex-post evaluations of projects and assessment of the programs' impact;

  • Technical due diligence missions, more particularly oriented towards agricultural sectors in connection with networks of family farms.
