Case Study: Rural Enterprise Network
Improving Market Access for Small-Scale Farmers
The “Rural Enterprise Network” (REN) is a social marketing organisation that aims to link small-scale farmers in Sri Lanka to input-output markets through improved product quality, access to market information and the establishment of a common brand. By organising producers in a network of organic agro- and food processing enterprises, the farmers benefit from joint marketing services. REN was the recipient of the SEED Award in 2010.
