|Word of the CEO|
|The main goal of OPPAZ is to strengthen the organic industry in Zambia so that it effectively contributes to national economic growth and poverty reduction. OPPAZ aims at increasing organic production for both local and export markets by promoting the use of organic agricultural production methods that are environmentally sustainable to enhance producers and processors’ incomes, food security and nutrition.|
OPPAZ’s capacity in terms of disseminating information to member producers and processors has been limited. Members have not been able to receive information on a regular and timely basis. As an umbrella Association that is working with various organisations and farmer groups in Zambia, OPPAZ has realised that there is need for timely information sharing and networking among the various primary stakeholders. OPPAZ intends to develop a comprehensive database of buyers and information on market opportunities, which will be disseminated to members/associations. Therefore, a computerised ICT will provide accurate market information to the buyers of organic products.
