About Kilimo Trust
The ambition is to achieve a trade-based food security system in which all consumers including those who are in farming obtain most of the food they consume by purchasing food that is increasingly processed, stored and distributed to meet different needs and preferences.
Why is this important? Because, the very low levels of specialisation in the production of food commodities by smallholders within EAC, dominated by subsistence farming, encourage the production of food commodities in unsuitable agro-ecological zones, leading to perpetuation of hunger and poverty.
