Abstract

This paper explores the commercial potential of indigenous African crops and models a supply chain that integrates small-scale cooperative farms with large-scale cultivation for agricultural export. The research addresses the existing systems' deficiencies while analyzing the prospect for global supply chain expansion for food products sourced from Africa to China. The model seeks to overcome current challenges and enable competitive advantage, as well as infrastructure and economic development.
