Description/Abstract: 

This article details success of the APPSA project in promoting value addition in Mozambique. APPSA embarked on an effort to promote sustainable value-addition to commonly grown food legumes and increase incomes among smallholder farmers in Zambézia and Niassa Provinces (Guruè, Lichinga, Cuamba, Muembe and Chimbonila Districts). About 913 small-scale farmers (610 females) were trained in legume grain selection, packaging, sealing and labelling. The result was a remarkable success in bean processing and improved incomes.
