The Egypt agrifood digital network

An interactive network to simplify the market access of small farmers

BMTI was a partner in the Bashaier – The Egypt agrifood digital network project, implemented from 2014 to 2016 by the Knowledge Economy Foundation- KEF, an Egyptian NGO that works to improve the agricultural development.

The Egypt agrifood digital network, financed by the Egypt’s Ministry of Scientific Research and the European Union, aimed at bridging the gap between the small farmers and the agri-food markets using ICT solutions, and enhancing the relations with the greater enterprises too.

In the project’s context we gave punctual information about the prices of fruit and vegetables in the major Italian, French, German, British and Dutch wholesale markets.

Our involvement in this project allowed us to give an important contribution to the improvement of Egyptian farmers’ conditions by providing them with useful information on dynamics of agri-food markets, fostering transparency’s culture.
