in 2017, EAGC is marking its 10th anniversary, celebrating ten years of achievements in advocating for and facilitating an efficient, structured, inclusive and profitable grain trade in the Eastern Africa region, and emerging a decade stronger!
In the first African Grain Trade Summit in 2005, a resolution was passed to form a regional umbrella organization to bring together all grain value chain stakeholders; from the farmers, to the traders, to the processors, to address crosscutting issues, specifically the transaction costs incurred in trading grain.
EAGC was borne! From its humble beginnings EAGC has flourished into an organisation that is the leading voice of the grain industry in the region. We begun with just 28 founding members in 2006 and have now grown to a total of 269 members spanning 10 countries.
“We thank EAGC for its incredible improvement in services to the Tanzania members including daily updates on regional market information, training, trade forums and workshops among others.” Julius Wambura, Frabho Enterprises, TANZANIA
