Applying a Systems Approach to the Problem of Post-Harvest Loss

Categories: Member News


The IGD Advisory team has partnered with the Rockefeller Foundation (RF)’s YieldWise Initiative since 2013 to reduce global waste, spoilage and post-harvest loss (PHL) in Africa. Our work with YieldWise aims to equip RF’s implementing partners with the strategic knowledge and private sector connections to carry out a market-based development approach to reduce PHL in the target value chains.

PYXERA Global, YieldWise’s implementing partner in the Nigerian tomato value chain, serves as an intermediary between smallholder tomato farmers and the program’s anchor buyer, Dangote Farms Limited.

IGD recently introduced a new blog series on strengthening Nigeria’s tomato industry. The latest blog in this series features PYXERA Global’s systems approach perspective and their tomato value chain activities in Kano.
