Farmer empowerment means providing with the ability and capacity to use local and international skills and knowledge to ensure a fair social and economical situation while preserving and conserving the environment. In this process, the farmer is becoming a supply chain actor, a crop specialist with clear market orientation. The farmers are informed and taught all the best practices to create sustainable production, and to increase the quality of their livelihood. This enables the production of a better crop of a higher and more consistent quality and quantity, which is better suited to satisfy the needs of the buyers while asking for a fair price without damaging the environment.
