Bangladesh: Market and Value Chain Infrastructure Development Project
The proposed Market and Value Chain Infrastructure Development Project (MVCIDP) will establish a modern safe food value chain for high value perishable crops to service markets in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The value chain will link farmers to a handling and intermediary network, which in turn will link to end users that include food processors, retailers and exporters. There is a critical role for the private sector to invest in, manage and operate the value chain infrastructure and services. Private sector participation is key to future project sustainability. The rationale for public sector intervention is to address failure in the market to provide appropriate price premiums for safe food which thus deters private sector investment in the value chain.
