Value Chain Cereals and Oilseeds Study

Value Chain Cereals and Oilseeds Study 5.2.2013


This report is the sum­ma­ry of the study request by CESVI to Perene Con­sult­ing . The study aimed to ana­lyze the mar­ket val­ue of cere­als and oilseeds in Nhamatan­da dis­trict in Sofala , with spe­cial empha­sis on maize , sesame and peanuts , pre­pared dur­ing the peri­od Novem­ber 2012 to Jan­u­ary 2013. The con­sul­tan­cy involved sev­er­al struc­tured and semi-struc­tured inter­views with the dif­fer­ent actors of the val­ue chain, from the pro­vi­sion of inputs to the last play­er mar­ket­ing .

The main objec­tive of this study was to iden­ti­fy the poten­tial for devel­op­ment of val­ues  chain ​​( CV ) and sup­port the devel­op­ment of local strate­gies for the cul­ti­va­tion , pro­cess­ing and mar­ket­ing of grains and oilseeds in the dis­trict of Nhamatan­da .

Were identified and analyzed :
  • The val­ue chains of cere­als and oil seeds ( maize, sesame and ground­nuts ) and its stake­hold­ers with greater devel­op­ment poten­tial , in order to improve the liv­ing con­di­tions of small-scale pro­duc­ers and mem­bers of pro­duc­er asso­ci­a­tions .
  • The con­straints and obsta­cles that inhibit the devel­op­ment of exist­ing val­ue chains poten­tial pro­pos­als .
  • The strate­gic mech­a­nisms that con­tribute to the for­ti­fi­ca­tion and insti­tu­tion­al orga­ni­za­tion of actors in val­ue chains.
  • The oppor­tu­ni­ties for inter­ven­tion project ( sec­ond phase ) and pro­pos­als for con­crete actions .
The report is structured as follows :
  • Gen­er­al analy­sis of agri­cul­ture in Mozam­bique.
  • Val­ue Chain Analy­sis ( CV ) of corn , sesame and peanuts.
  • Analy­sis of sup­port ser­vices .
  • Con­straints affect­ing the dif­fer­ent val­ue chains stud­ied.
  • Rec­om­men­da­tions for the sec­ond phase of the pro­gram CESVI
