The journey of a Liberian tomato
Following a tomato from field to plate & understanding the difficulties along the supply chain
Harris sells the carton to Sajj restaurant for $86, which is $1.50 per pound. After GROW's intervention he now has a contract with them too. This means he knows exactly when he needs vegetables each week, and how much money he will get for them. He says, "Before they would just call me when they needed food. I was unable to plan or know how much profit I would make that week". Harris now keeps records of everything he buys and sells so that he can calculate his profits and is able to reliably invest in the farmers.
