This action, Beef Enterprise Strengthening and Transformation (BEST), is a product of co-creation, which involved a collaborative development of strategies together with key beef value chain (BVC) stakeholders. The action to transform the current BVC to a commercialized, viable industry in Zimbabwe will be organized by the BEST consortium comprised of four dynamic main member organizations (World Vision (WV), Welthungerhilfe (WHH), Sustainable Agricultural Technology (SAT), and Zimbabwe Agricultural Development Trust (ZADT). WVZ (Lead Applicant) will lead project implementation in Mashonaland and Manicaland provinces of Zimbabwe while WHH (Co-applicant) will cover project implementation in the Midlands province of Zimbabwe. The third co-applicant, SAT, will focus on Masvingo and Matabeleland North provinces of Zimbabwe while ZADT, who is an associate member of the consortium, will have a national focus as their work includes financial inclusion services and market linkages, which is key to the success and sustainability of the BVC.
