The EU SWITCH-Asia II programme is designed to work with the respective beneficiaries in different stages. It focuses on successful engagement with the respective supply chain actors (5,000 mango farmers/smallholding growers, 5,000 tomato farmers, and agro-food processing companies) to bring substantial change to tomato and mango processed food, i.e. juices, sauces, jams, jellies, pickles etc. The programme targets the over 12 million consumers in the Dhaka district, and other national associations and public agencies that are active in the horticulture sub-sector of the country.
