Source it Local !
Local sourcing refers to agri-business companies in developing countries that source their food inputs locally and sell their end product to the domestic market. Such companies can be international companies, national supermarkets as well as local entrepreneurs.
Local sourcing is an opportunity for companies that want to ensure sustainable supply and reduce costs by substituting imports. Depending on the design of the business model, sourcing locally can also have positive spin-offs for food security and local economic development.
