Among SNV Ghana’s Agriculture Projects is the HortiFresh programme. This is a 4-year sector programme (2018-2021) funded by the Dutch Embassy in Accra. The aim of the programme is “A sustainable and internationally competitive vegetable and fruit sector that contributes to inclusive economic growth, food and nutrition security”. The programme will contribute to three major areas that have been identified and that are in line with Ghana’s development policy: a competitive and innovative high-value fruit and vegetable sector; an inclusive and sustainable fruit and vegetable sector and a conducive business climate that facilitates the development of the fruit and vegetable sector.
The project’s structure combines an overall private sector-led sector development approach, through the establishment of a Business Platform, as well as strong business-led initiatives through Innovation Funds, Agronomic Services Fund and commercial loans. The West Africa HortiFresh is being implemented by a consortium of Wageningen UR (CDI www.wur.eu/cdi), SNV ( www.snv.org ), Advance Consulting, SENSE and Resilience.
