Quantifying Farmer Evaluation of Technologies

QuinoaHub has developed a comprehensive Outgrower Program that equips small-scale farmers with the necessary knowledge and access to high-value inputs, and a market to expand their businesses and risk mitigation strategies. By providing them with direct market access, we act as off-takers, taking out the middlemen, this gives them a chance for better profit. QuinoaHub’s current Outgrower Program in Rwanda and other countries where we operate provides training in the cultivation, handling, and harvesting of high-value super grains. We work hand-in-hand with the farmers and their communities, through collaborative agroecological systems and knowledge-sharing that strengthen their capacities and access to the right seed source of nutrient-dense foods.
With demand for high-quality, nutritious plant-based ingredients on the rise, at QuinoaHub we offer a complete solution for quinoa and other super grains. An incremental number of QuinoaHub’s Outgrowers are trained and officially certified as Supergrains Growers. Following a contract-farming approach, QuinoaHub guarantees the off-take of the harvested crops to ensure the sustainability of this program.
