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.

LEBANON / LINQ

Lebanon Investment in Quality

Increasing domestic and export sales and the competitiveness of value-added agribusinesses

The USAID-funded LINQ project is partnering with high-potential agribusinesses, processors and growers of fresh produce to improve productivity, product safety, and quality while creating new market linkages. LINQ works with partners to identify the following resources needed to overcome constraints:  

Technical assistance: This may include product innovation development, facilitation of market linkages, improvements to production technology and quality, and analysis of business investment opportunities. This support is provided by local or international volunteers, paid consultants, and remote mentoring, including expertise leveraged from Land O’Lakes Inc., a premier U.S. agribusiness.

Investment grants: Partners need to invest in new equipment and facility upgrades to achieve competitiveness. They also need to revise and develop products that respond to the marketplace. Acceleration plans co-developed with the LINQ team guide agribusinesses on where to make crucial upgrades to take their businesses to the next level. When perceived risk in these new technologies is high, LINQ may match grants to help partners make the necessary investments.
