Farmers to benefit from WFP purchasing model

Published on 07 October 2010

Farmers in the Busoga region will benefit from a new World Food Programme maize purchasing model as the agency moves to directly deal with the producers. The initiative launched recently will assist WFP to stock directly from famers instead of the current contracting system. Ms Gina Casar, the deputy executive director, resource management of WFP told farmers in Jinja on Monday that the organisation was working out modalities regarding the new system.
