Farm Fresh Produce on An App
Based on the model pioneered by Twiga in Kenya, Nigerian agri-tech startup Agriple connects farmers to buyers via an online platform that improves market access, shortens the farm-to-table time, and cuts food waste. Launched in August 2019, Agriple has built an app that allows farmers to upload pictures of their farm produce along with prices, and sell to buyers in any part of the country. Since launch the platform has helped its farmers sell over 60,000 kkilos of farm produce, worth about US$35,000 in sales. Agriple has about 300 farmers registered on the platform, and has access to thousands more through partners. The company has taken on about US$10,000 in debt and equity funding so far, and is seeking more significant investment to help it scale.
