Agro Industry


Agro Industry is a very big sector involving production, storage, transport, processing and manufacturing, packaging and marketing. These are agro-business activities carried out in large, medium and small scale in the formal and informal sector. This report is focusing on enhancement of skills of young people in the informal and semi-informal sector. Simply defined, informal sector includes those who operate without a license, and usually on a small scale businesses which include household enterprises. Semi-in formal businesses include licensed dealers who operate alongside unlicensed dealers and exhibit most of the features of the informal businesses. The labour market assessment focused on value addition in agro-business beyond crop production; implying that skills needed in crop and livestock production are excluded, and instead focus on processing, packaging, storage and marketing.
