The discipline of marketing is frequently misunderstood and incorrectly employed by agribusiness organisations. This is because farmers traditionally sold their produce at auction or to government-owned commodity accumulators. Today, progressive farmers recognise they are a critical part of value chains responsible for global food security and can command premium prices for quality products. Dr Phil Currey will draw on his experience as a management consultant and academic researcher at one of the world’s leading institutions for agricultural research and teaching, to explain how farmers and other value chain actors can employ contemporary marketing practices to ensure their long term prosperity.
