Jungle Beat Success Story.pdf
With the equipment, seed and market linkages facilitated through the Strategic Partnership grant, Jungle Beat is now capable of cleaning, sorting and grading four tons of groundnuts per hour at the Lusaka factory—enough for Jungle Beat to increase its purchase of groundnuts from small-scale farmers by up to 10,000 tons per season.
