Export Promotion of Organic Products from Africa (EPOPA) is a programme created by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) in 1997, with projects present in Uganda Tanzania and Zambia. According to their website:

”EPOPA aims to give African smallholder farmers a better livelihood through developing local and international organic markets. The increase in agricultural production benefits rural communities, thus the farmers. Thousands of smallholder farmers get a premium price for their organic crop. In general, yields increase because of the better practices. They get a more transparent price setting from the exporter who buys more directly and they are paid cash in hand.” [1]


“The operation of SIDA’s EPOPA Programme is subcontracted to a consortium of two consultancies AgroEco from the Netherlands and Grolink from Sweden.” [2]
