Project Characteristics and Results
Project sustainability
As well as the facilitation of the Caprivi Chilli Farmers Association, the project succeeded in putting NGOs and companies that are trying to source Chilli in direct contact with farmers at the Kabbe and Sauzou sites. To enhance the efficiently of the value chain, buyers will purchase seedlings and Chilli (dried or wet) directly from the producers. In addition, local sales outlets and restaurants were approached to purchase fresh vegetables. The Baobab Bistro (restaurant) and Kalinki and Megasave (retail outlets) have agreed to be regular buyers of fresh produce, the latter two agreeing to purchase bulk quantities if the quality is good. Sales contact has been established with Dr Loki Osborne of Africa Spices4 in Livingstone, Zambia. If the quality and quantity is sufficient, they are prepared to buy wet, crushed Chilli after the harvesting season in March 20145. This is desirable as wet Chilli fetches a higher price. Afra Schimming-Chase of Chase and Associates made a query about the supply of Habanero Chilli in July 2013, so the project hopes further interest is expressed.
