1.       Introduction: In July 2015, CNFA began implementing the Feed the Future Food Security and Agribusiness Support (FAS) program in Egypt, an Associate Award under the Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA) LWA. The five-year FAS program aims to dramatically increase incomes and improve food security for at least 14,000 Upper Egyptian smallholder farmers.  The market-driven approach of the project is supported by four interrelated components, including improved on-farm production, more efficient post-harvest processes, improved marketing of agriculture crops and products, and improved nutritional status of pregnant and lactating women and children under 5.  To promote post-harvest efficiency, the project vertically integrates farmer groups and develops agro-processing enterprises through cold chain expansion, storage facilities, and pack houses.  The project will achieve a 12% annualized increase in incomes for over 14,000 horticulture-based smallholder farmers through the introduction of 560 new contracts between horticulture smallholder farmers and market channels; and more than $1.5 million of new investment in women-owned agribusinesses. CNFA manages a $5.75 million matching grant fund which will be used to refurbish and develop productive infrastructure, catalyze innovation, stimulate investment, and support the development of critical value chain segments.

 

As part of project activities, the CNFA/FAS Project requires the purchase of supplies for agricultural crops collection centers, including sorting, drying, packing and cold storing machinery to support the operations of the project’s beneficiaries. The purpose of this RFQ is to solicit quotations for these items.
