What we do

Sustainable Agricultural Chain Development

Vredeseilanden is active within Sustainable Agricultural Chain Development. Our aim is to enable organizations of smallholder family farmers to successfully participate within sustainable value chains. We invest in the capabilities of these organizations and their members to become strong collective business organizations, while linking up these organizations with other chains actors like processors, traders, retailers, consumers… We also invest in connecting these farmer organizations with higher level farmer organizations and support these in their advocacy work towards governments and private actors to create an institutional environment that enables the position of smallholder family farmers within sustainable agricultural chains.

Through 8 regional Vredeseilanden Offices (VECOs) in Africa, Asia and Latin-America and through our office in Belgium, we support a variety of chain development programmes.
