Adding Value


Adding Value refers to the the subset of manufacturing that takes raw material and intermediate products and processes them into higher value tertiary products that can be sold directly to consumers. It can also apply to where services are provided, as in tourism or hunting.

Producers are usually encouraged to add value to their products, and to providing services where this is practical. Fruit can be prepacked, juiced or dried; maize can be milled or bagged; milk can be sold in a dairy shop, turned into yoghurt, cheese or maas, for example. Possibilities here are sketched on our “Marketing” page.

Government views agro-processing as a sector to be strengthened as it delivers on vital areas like job creation, exports and raising overall economic productivity.
