The Uganda Value-Added Maize Alliance will increase the capacity of farmers to produce high-quality maize, and aggregate this production so that the private sector will have a reliable supply of inputs for maize processing. The 9,500 participating smallholder farmer households will receive a 30 percent price premium paid for higher-quality maize and experience a 50 percent reduction in current post-harvest losses at the village level, and the partners will invest in processing equipment and facilities to produce maize bran and germ, as well as corn syrup. All of these products have a viable market in Uganda up the value chain to food processers and beverage producers who will realize significant cost-savings from locally available syrup, bran and germ.
