Supply

PICS technology opens up business opportunities for local manufacturers to produce and sell PICS bags. PICS project staff members currently work with several African-based plastic manufacturers to produce PICS triple-layer bags.

Additionally, African entrepreneurs and rural communities are starting new businesses focused on purchasing the PICS bags from manufacturers and selling them to farmers through their retail networks.
