USAID partners with PepsiCo to improve yields, production and availability of healthy food in East Africa. This pilot program, Enterprise EthioPEA, focuses on improving the production of chickpeas in Ethiopia. This existing value chain has potential not only as a nutritious staple food, but also as an export crop and a flexible ingredient for many processed foods.

The USAID-Walmart regional agreement supports small rural farmers in Central America, connecting them to the retailer's regional and international supply chains. The partnership builds on experience gained from previous collaborations in the region. It aims to help small rural farmers earn more from their fresh fruit and vegetable production. Consumers will benefit from greater access to diverse, locally grown produce.
