Our Producers

The core of ECOM’s business is its fruitful relationship with its suppliers. SMS’ close-knit network of agronomists is able to deliver tailored services to our suppliers, guiding them on matters ranging from certification advisory services to planting material and financial inclusion.

While aiming to build up local capacities, SMS strives to provide the necessary goods and services for our suppliers to benefit from their partnership with ECOM.

Suppliers receive the closest attention from our field staff, who are locally accessible and at their disposal.  As such,  ECOM is a key partner for farming communities, reinforcing the Group’s ability to deliver the right services and strengthening its focus on its original clients: the farmers.
