An enterprise approach to commodity system improvement: sweet potato in Uganda and Kenya. Final Technical Report.
Rural micro scale enterprises commercialising sweet potato-based food and other food products in Uganda and Kenya offer potential for income generation and employment for women usually responsible for food processing and marketing as well as for enhanced utilization of the root crops. This creates supply and demand for the new food products both in the poor household and for the local market sales, and contributes towards reducing poverty and improving nutrition and food security. This project aimed at identifying strategies, methods and technologies to improve both micro-enterprise performance and the quality, processes, and markets of sweet potato-based food products.
