Where We Work

Globally Present, Locally Driven

Our roots stem from a private sector agribusiness in America’s heartland. Our projects, partnerships and local insights cross continents. These factors steer how we work to strengthen global agricultural markets. But, you don’t have to take our word for it. Learn more about individual projects below.

MOZAMBIQUE / MERCADO

Mozambique Expansion of Rural Cattle and Dairy Opportunities

Developing a more competitive dairy sector in Mozambique

MERCADO is a Food for Progress initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In partnership with Tillers International, this project is increasing agricultural productivity and expanding the potential for trade among nearly 10,000 dairy participants, including smallholder farmers, mini-agribusinesses, processors, feed manufacturers, cooperatives and commercial breeders.

This project is training dairy producers on improved practices and farm management, expanding their access to dairy inputs, and easing access to finance for dairy producers, input suppliers, aggregators, processors and retailers. MERCADO builds on past USDA investments in both Manica and Sofala provinces to support private sector investments across the dairy value chain.
