THE WAY FORWARD │ Level Up Philippine Agriculture!

Collective Action / Cooperatives Development

Collective action involves organizing farmers/fishers into cooperatives or business entities to become viable blocks or units of production enjoying higher efficiencies in operations and improved profits.

Linkages between organized farmers/fishers and major players in the food industry must be established to gain a steady market for their produce. The “big brother-small brother” arrangement between major agribusiness firms and organized agriculture smallholders will also facilitate transfer of technologies.
