Agro-processors have various processes involved in the production of food crops. For instance, a rice processing company will go through the process of aggregating paddy from farmers to weighing the paddy and then conducting quality tests. If the quality test is passed, the paddy goes into either the warehouse or directly into the mill where it is processed into rice. If the quality test is failed, the paddy is returned to its destination.
Through SupplyBase, smallholder farmers don’t have to wait for days to get the payment for supplying an agro-processor. Agro-processors can also use SupplyBase to run an out-growers scheme program where smallholder farmers can get loans and are given incentives based on their performance.
