Stimulating the potato value chain in Zambia

Case study of the emerging transformational impact of AgDevCo’s investment in Saise Farming Enterprises Limited

Published by

Saise is Zambia’s first seed potato producer. This study explores how AgDevCo’s investment has contributed to the expansion of the value chain and encouraged commercial farming in Zambia’s neglected Northern Province. 

As well as a direct impact, AgDevCo investments aim to have a transformational impact on the local economies in which they are located. These more indirect impacts are referred to as economic transformational change. These ripple effects can include economic spill-over activity, behavioural changes of other companies and farmers, and increases in economic activity along value chains.
