Meets food emergencies caused by drought, floods, or any other natural disaster

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.

Government agency
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.
