Complex Made Simple

Farmers Collaborative offers dynamic networking tool for Bahrain’s farmers

BCCI and Bahrain Noor El Ain’s initiative at Budaiya Farmer’s Market continues on mission to connect farmers and consumers.

Following the success of Bahrain’s first ever Farmers Collaborative event at the popular Budaiya Farmer’s Market in January, the initiative continues on to a digital platform.

Due to the combined efforts of the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) and the Bahrain Noor El Ain Festival during the January event, local farmers were afforded the chance via the Collaborative to further develop and expand their business by connecting directly with consumers, bulk buyers and fellow vendors.

The Farmers Collaborative new digital site will be launched within BCCI’s Committee of Food and Agriculture’s website and will display farmers’ profiles including such information as their biographies, products, harvest times, organic options and production capacity.

The Farmers Collaborative website aims to further create beneficial networking opportunities in order to encourage demand for local Bahraini produce from bulk buyers such as restaurant owners, chefs, hotel procurement managers, food businesses in addition to the general public.
