Vendor Agribusiness Systems work with smallholder farmers to produce chili pepper. The company provides aggregation and postharvest handling services and then process the chili pepper into dry form for industrial and export purposes.

Market Opportunity/ Problem

Demand for chili pepper grows continuously because of its growing industrial uses and its health benefits. In addition, the African Free Trade act has seen an influx of other African nationalities purchasing Nigerian dried chili pepper. This has driven the price to more than 150% in recent times.
