CleanStar Mozambique helps farmers grow a diverse mix of grains, legumes and starch crops, and manages the processing and logistics required to get these crops to the urban markets.
Urban families in Mozambique are being increasingly impoverished by imported food price inflation, as a result of inadequate investment in local food production.
Urban demand for grains, legumes, flour and cooking oil are strong and growing in Mozambique, representing a strong opportunity for Mozambican farmers and their partners who can access this demand.
CleanStar ensures that smallholder farming partners, and the rural communities they live in, have access to a greater diversity of nutritional food crops year-round.
By increasing farmers’ capacity to grow surpluses, and connecting those farmers to markets, CleanStar also enables previously subsistence-only farmers to generate significant and diversified income streams from agriculture.
