The following case study provides an overview of the groundnut supply chain, a commodity identified by the Procurement for Development Forum as exhibiting potential both to increase quantity and to improve added value from a number of African countries. After a brief summary of current market conditions, the production models of some of the largest exporters are compared, with a view to highlight the primary strengths and success factors that could be transferred to African models. The study ends with an account by TWIN on how to build up the peanut industry again.
