Food Reserve Agency (FRA)

Lusaka, Zambia

Updated 4 months ago
In 1995, the Zambian government helped set up a national market-oriented economic system. Specifically this led to the liberalisation of the marketing and storage of agricultural produce, with the government reducing its participation. However the government’s involvement in the agricultural sector still includes the maintenance of food security reserves, run by the Food Reserve Agency. FRA also provides market support, and the provision of relevant market information and agricultural credit facilities to small-scale farmers.

Government agency

The Food Reserve Agency (FRA) was established to ensure a reliable supply and meet local shortfalls in the supply of designated agricultural commodities. This agency also addresses issues affecting the food reserve and the stabilisation of prices. FRA's goal is to complete the value chain by providing market access to small scale farmers in rural areas.

Grain storage

After procurement, it is critical that necessary measures are put in place to store grains for long periods of time without spoilage. To this effect, FRA working with the government has constructed a good number of storage facilities across the country. The goal is to ensure that everything that is harvested by the farmer is easily transported and stored properly.
