FairMatch Support develops and improves sustainable agricultural supply chains
FairMatch Support is an international, independent social venture. We are convinced that in a future-proof food system long-term collaboration, sustainable agricultural production and a fair distribution of profits throughout the supply chain are key to sustainable development.
Innovative & independent coach behind the scenes
We develop and improve sustainable agricultural supply chains in various sectors. From fruit to cocoa and from nuts to beeswax.
As an innovative and independent coach behind the scenes we support and match all actors of agricultural supply chains together. We make sure there is a market and a viable business case for both (smallholder) producers as well as processors, purchasers and funders. This enables companies to gain access to sufficient, high-quality supply now and in the future. In addition it allows producers to work on the quality and volume of their products, to professionalise their business and to access new markets so they can improve their livelihood.
We offer a range of support services to companies, producers and other actors in agricultural supply chains. Our work is based on four pillars:
Economic & Social Empowerment
We support producers and producer organisations in the agrifood sector in professionalising their business and match them with new markets to strengthening their position in supply chains and improve their livelihoods.
Inclusive Business Empowerment
We support companies in the agrifood sector to internalise sustainability in their supply chains so they gain access to sufficient, high-quality produced raw materials, now and in the future.
Viable business case for all actors
We create a viable business case for all actors involved. Co-creation and long-term collaboration on fair pricing, sustainable production and transparency are key to sustainable development.
We create innovative solutions to achieve sustainable and future-proof supply chains. We learn and adapt our approaches to make them more economically viable, scalable and customised for every specific matter.
Making a long-term difference in sustainable business
Together with profit and non-profit organisations we work on sustainable business cases for a variety of agricultural products. Take a look at a selection of our projects in different sectors and regions worldwide.

Towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals
Our global food system is in need of change. We are convinced that in a future-proof system long term collaboration, sustainable agricultural production with respect for the environment and a fair distribution of profits throughout the supply chain are key to sustainable development.
We use the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) to shape our goals and activities. The SDG’s form a universally adopted framework for sustainable development, aiming to end all forms of poverty, inequalities and climate change. The framework calls for worldwide action among governments, organisations and civil society. We feel that it is our responsibility to support all these actors involved in creating and improving sustainable supply chains.
With our work we contribute to the following Sustainable Development Goals:
17 agricultural products
We set up sustainable supply chains for more than 17 agricultural products such as cashew nuts, rice and fruit.
We have boots on the ground: we work from 4 offices in different parts of the world and with a global network of dedicated partners.
35 private companies
We supported more than 35 private companies, both corporate, SME and sector-wide.
We worked in over 18 countries on 5 continents.
