Dr. Charles Murekezi, the Director-General of Agriculture Development in the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources, said that the investments will consolidate what has been done by government and other partners to address issues in the agricultural value chain sector.
The projects will be implemented in partnership with Africa Improved Foods that processes maize grains, KUMWE that conducts post-harvest handling and logistics and Agriterra, a Dutch non-governmental organization supporting the country’s efforts to improve the livelihoods of local farmers engaged in dairy farming, Irish potatoes, maize, and sugarcane and others. ■
