tephen Krüger, the director of TonnUp and a maize producer based in Viljoenskroon, explains that the platform has been geared toward supporting local farmers and buyers.
“TonnUp is the result of a fundamental need for farmers to extract a fair price for their inputs and risk. Our farmers are the starting point of the food value chain but have the least ability to create a fair price for their product. They take all the risks and create the real value. We think there’s a real opportunity to lift the veil on the commodities market and help the farmers get the best prices for their products,” said Krüger.
