CropsDirect is a free to use, multilingual (English, Afrikaans, Sesotha, Setswana, Xhosa and Zulu) marketing portal for farmers and agroprocessors to directly contract with one another. The purpose of the site is to provide market access to farmers; and to protect against commodity price risk for both farmers and processors by virtue of pre-plant contracts.
The portal allows for agroprocessors to create supply tenders which farmers can bid for; and allows farmers with surplus stock to auction which processors can bid on. Traders can also participate. A novel rating system is also included to develop a ‘reputation’ amongst the users. Once the tender or auction is closed, the parties can directly conclude contracts between each other.
There are no fees involved.
The development of the site was sponsored by Mabele Fuels.
