Cooperative business development & farmer entrepreneurship
Advice – Training – Exchange
Agriterra provides quality advice, training and exchange, building on the renowned Dutch agricultural and cooperative sector. We provide these inputs via three flagship services: ‘Take your cooperative to the next level’, ‘Cooperative advisory services’ and ‘Connect farmers to policy makers’.
Our unique focus on cooperatives and farmers’ organisations, the quality obtained through experienced farmers, farm leaders and staff of cooperatives (the agripoolers), our extensive knowledge of the countries in which we operate through local presence, added to the mobilisation of the organised farmers’ network has resulted in state-of-the-art training modules. We offer them in five disciplines: Management & Organisation, Governance & Leadership, Financial Management, Business Development & Advocacy and Lobby. Our training modules provide practical know-how in more than 10 languages, with a methodology that builds on teamwork. The range of training modules matches our three-track service provision for strengthening farmer-led businesses, improving sustainable farmer services, and supporting lobbying and advocacy.
To ensure change and impact, our customers, cooperatives and farmers’ organisations, are in the driver’s seat. They build relationships with financers and buyers, organise successful lobbies or provide valuable services to their members in a sustainable way. To enable farmers' organisations and cooperatives to do this better, our training sessions provide them with practical instructions and experiences of colleagues from around the world.
Important Notice: Update concerning COVID-19. Training dates may differ due to coronavirus.
These are unprecedented times for all of us. The corona pandemic has reached all the countries where Agriterra is active. For the safety of our people, all international and domestic training assignments (in the Netherlands and all other countries we work in) scheduled to take place until the end of April, are postponed until further notice.
We trust that these measures will contribute to the safety and well-being of all our colleagues, clients and partners. Our aim is to ensure to the best of our abilities the continuity of our work so that we can provide our clients with the best possible assistance, even under these challenging circumstances.
Agriterra is for cooperatives, in good times and times of hardship. So, let's move on and move forward together and let’s stay connected. Stay safe and healthy.
