The projects is a comparative study conducted across Tanzania and South Africa focusing on three value chains: maize meal, citrus and dairy.

The three aims of the study are:

First, to describe the factors that determine innovation and inclusion in agro-processing.

Second, explain the challenges to promoting SME participation in agro-processing value chains

Third, to use these findings to support industrial policy formulation at the national and regional level.

The project is publicly-funded academic research. The project grant comes from the UK Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) Global Challenges Research Fund.
