  • Market Development

    CPHDA has an in-house team of market analysts, a global buyers’ network, and field programs that always include market logistics specialists.

  • Value Chain Analysis and Good Agricultural Practices

    Through VC+GAP, CPHDA encourages producers to adopt a commercial approach to agriculture, treating their farms — however small — as businesses. We train our partners to educate farmers on the costs of production, market prices, break-even points, and rates of return, enabling them to map out a business plan for sustainable profit.
