VECO enables and supports smallholder farmers to take up their role in rural poverty alleviation and to contribute to feeding a growing world population in a sustainable way.
Indonesia is now officially the world’s 16th largest economy. What does it take to feed the country and to satisfy the new fast-growing consuming class that demands healthy food? How can we learn from Tanzanian passion fruit farmers to build a better food system? Fruits and vegetables are part of important export commodities in Tanzania, yet feeding their cities with healthy food still proves very challenging.
On 13, 14 & 15 January, as every year, more than 8,000 volunteers will take to the streets of Belgium and sell a small gadget to support Vredeseilanden/VECO.
What can VECO offer to farmer's organisations, financial institutions and food value chain actors? At the occasion of the Building Trust Seminar we captured this in a 3 minute video message.
Vredeseilanden/VECO’s house is under renovation. It is not however our office building that is being rebuilt, it’s our organisation. From January 1st 2017 our organisational structure will undergo a total makeover and we will become an international network organisation.
