PBV's core competency is identifying commercial opportunities that match available
crops (both surplus and unexploited) with market needs for food, feed, and other
products that can be created from those crops. We engage local researchers in the
surveys, lab trials, test marketing, and pilot demonstrations that support development of
a business plan. We mobilize capital to fund both the proof of concept and later
commercialization of the concept. PBV retains an interest in the resulting business,
providing on-going support to the local management team.
We are currently working on the following projects
Restructure the supply chain that links coffee farmers in Yirgacheffe with exporters who
are moving partially processed beans to American and European markets. Move
value-added processing into the local community, forward contract bean purchases, and
synchronize harvests with export demand. Project is in feasibility review.
Cultivate a wide range of produce during the entire year, including several months with
temperatures at -30C. Demonstrate a new approach to hothouse design that eliminates
the costly hydrocarbon-based heating that renders greenhouse operations uneconomic.
Project is seeking funding to support a proof of concept.
