A large percentage of the fresh fruit and vegetables sold in Shoprite Nigeria’s 25 stores is sourced locally and by hosting these events the retailer gives the farmers the experience of selling in a formal retail setting.

Nwaorisa Chinedu Prosper, the owner of AMET Farm Ventures, has been supplying Shoprite for five years. For him, the most gratifying part remains the interaction with customers. “They were very surprised that the majority of the products available at Shoprite is locally sourced.

I’m also grateful for the opportunity to market my business directly to customers. This is particularly good for smaller farmers as it could lead to people from their community buying directly from them in order to save some money,” adds Prosper.
