Farmer Entrepreneurship Program
Filipino farmers work hard every day, producing food for the country while trying to sell enough to make a living for their families. But there is always the uncertainty of who will buy their produce and at what price.
This is where the Farmer Entrepreneurship Program (FEP) comes in.
FEP enables smallholder farmers to supply corporate buyers such as Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC). This means that the vegetables needed to produce JFC’s delicious burgers, rice meals, pizzas and pastas now come directly from farmers.
Since 2008, FEP has partnered with various organizations to train smallholder farmer groups on agro-entrepreneurship, building their capacities to supply vegetables in a manner that meets the standards and requirements of corporate buyers while ensuring farmers make a profit.
Through FEP, farmers transform into well-equipped agro-entrepreneurs.
