Fresh fruits and vegetables are high value commodities which are central to the strategies for growth of the agricultural sector of countries across southern Africa. Fresh fruits and vegetables are also an important source of micronutrients, and could play a critical role in addressing some of the persistent micro-nutrient deficiencies recorded in the southern African region, such as in iron, vitamin A, and folates. However a lack of fair price guarantee, unequal power dynamics within supply chains, and the perishability of the crop can create risks for the producer.

Work Package 4 explores and compares the ways in which domestic and export supply chain processes, regulations, food standards, and contractual arrangements shape the experiences of producers and consumers and impacts on human and environmental health in Tanzania and South Africa
