ABSTRACT



The 2022 Annual Trends and Outlook Report (ATOR) examines policies to enhance the contribution of the agrifood processing sector to successful food systems transformation in Africa. The agrifood processing sector is expanding and increasing in importance as the role of processed food in diets grows. Increasingly, processing constitutes an essential link between producers and consumers and is a vital element for strategies to promote smallholder commercialization and rural development.


The report uses available cross-country data and case studies from value chains throughout the continent to provide an overview of recent growth in the processing sector and the performance, structure, and major constraints of key processing subsectors. The report discusses the challenges that prevent small and informal agrifood processing firms from growing and formalizing, examining required policies and strategies to strengthen the sector. Some recommendations include establishing enabling business environments and offering targeted support for skills development and access to finance and technology. The report argues that such strategies are crucial to increase performance in the agrifood processing sector and to better connect smallholders to markets, incentivizing farm production and productivity increases and catalyzing broader growth and transformation.
