In the LIQUID program we aim:

  1. To explore inclusive business models in Southeast Asia and to scale the best practices to East-Africa.
  2. To assess how different models of vertical and horizontal business collaboration support farmers to increase quality, quantity and productivity.
  3. To investigate how business models can help to manage risk and seasonality in smallholder production systems and thereby improve productivity.
  4. To study how quality assurance systems can be adapted to fit selected business models.
  5. To investigate how different business models can support on-farm innovations towards more sustainable farming practices.
