Shrimp farmers in Bangladesh are part of the largest sector of production in the country – an agricultural sector that employs more than 40% of the country’s workforce. While Bangladesh is a rapidly growing economy, 28.3% of its population was below the poverty line in 2020 (earning less than $3.20 per day).
This project aims to break the cycle of poverty for farmers of the black tiger shrimp near Cox’s Bazar. Middlemen are aggregating harvests, neglecting quality, and greatly diminishing financial returns to farmers. By organizing individual farms into clusters that can sell directly to processors with rigorous product quality standards and traceability, the social and environmental benefits of this prized product can be assured.
