The Sustainable Agriculture, Food and Environment (SAFE) Platform is a multi-stakeholder alliance initiated by the MIF, coordinated by Hivos and co-founded by private sector participants, donors and non-governmental organizations that share a common vision: improving business processes, addressing the challenges of sustainable agriculture while including smallholder farmers in global value chains.

The platform leverages existing knowledge, expertise, and resources from all its members in order to implement a series of projects that pilot or scale up innovative value chain approaches. The platform works with coffee and cocoa producers, and later will include other crops with replication potential. The two sub-regions that the project initially focuses on are Central America and the Andean region, where the founding members and the MIF believe interventions can achieve greater impact.
