Twin seeks to strengthen producer organisations as a key route to empowerment and sustainable development for smallholder farmers. We take a partnership based approach which reflects both producer and business needs to foster long-term trading relationships that benefit all actors in the value chain. Our aim is to demonstrate that our approach to inclusive, sustainable business is successful, replicable, and scalable – as well as delivering long-lasting, transformational change for smallholders.
