The horticulture sector, despite having great potential for smallholder farmer income growth and poverty reduction, is characterised as a fragmented value chain with many smallholder farmers having limited scale and only able to supply informal markets.

The program aims to commercialise and formalise the fruits and vegetable sub-sector by supporting and strengthening businesses in input supply, aggregation, value addition and export capacity to increase market access and participation of MSMEs.
