Agribee link agriculture world

12/27/2021 07:59

AgriBee (Cambodia) Plc, a value chain management company, aims to scale up the performance of key players in the agricultural and agribusiness sector and improve operations at all stages of the supply process, to deliver more valuable products to end customers.Founded in December 2019, the company has been developing BeeApp to provide stakeholders in the sector with easier access to funds, technical assistance and other market-oriented services and supports.The firm identifies these key players as farmers, agri-input suppliers, crop traders, rice millers and exporters, and financial institutions, and connects them through the platform. It places great emphasis on farmers, as one of the most vulnerable actors in the sector.The app has onboarded 3,000 smallholder farmers, 300 BeeShops, 20 BeeDepo, 20 crop traders, 70 rice millers, five agri-input suppliers, five exporters and two microfinance institutions (MFI).AgriBee is also lending a hand in arrangements for the collection of 100,000 tonnes of paddy, and contract farming agreements with 12 agricultural cooperatives.Securing financing has proven particularly difficult for agricultural actors, with loans to the sector consistently accounting for fewer than 20 per cent, according to central bank data.During the Covid-19 crisis, the sector continued to enjoy growth, although a great deal of potential is believed to have been squandered due to limited processing capacity and the fact that exports comprise predominantly raw materials.On top of that, investors have generally remained hesitant to enter the market.The company’s chairman Mak Chamroeun sat down with The Post’s May Kunmakara to discuss more about what AgriBee has been up to, and how it has improved Cambodian agricultural value chains.
