The kick off meeting of this research group was held in Nairobi on 6 November 2014 and was followed by a field visit to the Kakuzi avocado farm and small scale avocado farmers. A key element of this research project is to better understand how different contract modalities with smallholder farmers can be applied to ensure a more steady supply of high quality avocados to Kakuzi, as well as higher incomes and employment opportunities for smallholder farmers.
