Facilitate Formation of FPO -

ACF acts as a catalyst and support in organising farmers and establishing their own Farmer Producer Organisation. We aim to cumulatively facilitate formation of 20 such FPOs by 2018.

Strengthening FPO Governance -

Whilst FPOs are managed by farmers themselves, ACF plays a critical role in supporting the Governance of these organisations to ensure their long — term sustainability.

Joint Bulk Procurement -

ACF helps each farmer producer organisation in the joint bulk procurement of a variety of inputs for farms, including fertilisers, and organic insecticides.

Facilitate Market Linkages -

ACF helps facilitate market linkages so that each farmer producer organisation can cut out middlemen and generate better profits for their members. In 2017 and 2018, our FPOs aim to supply 75000 MT and 80000 MT of biomass respectively, to ACL.
