Challenges in Value Addition

Challenges to the small scale farmers
The farmers face the following challenges in the process of value addition to the raw materials:

  • The farmers lack the necessary knowledge of how to add value to agricultural products. The knowledge can be achieved through training.
  • They lack the capacity to meet greater demands and expectations of customers in terms of quality, quantity and consistency
  • Most farmers operate on a subsistence level and  are quite small and they even lack the land
  • The farmers lack the financial and technological capacity to process their produce.
  • There are few co-operatively owned agro-processing industries to organise the farmers.
  • Uganda still imports more processed farm produce than it exports.
  • Lack of market oriented farming
  • They lack the skill to successful market the farm produce on their own as opposed of going through middlemen.
  • Lack of forum which the farmers can join  to share experience
