Eastern Africa Grain Council (EAGC)

Executive Director: Gerald Masila

Background

Eastern Africa Grain Council (EAGC) is a non-profit, non-political and non-denominational organization, which will prepare, disseminate and promote the exchange of information on matters affecting the regional grain industry. It incorporates the key stakeholders in the regional grain industry including public sector and allied parastatals.

Established in 2006 and based in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, EAGC operates in the Eastern Africa region. It is currently mandated to work in the 10 countries which include Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Zambia and Malawi.

Some of the objectives of the EAGC are to promote a well-functioning regional grain supply chain, focusing on trade issues affecting all sectors of the chain, and building a platform for reducing constraints in regional grain trade.

It also aims to build cooperation, interaction, partnerships, alliances, networks and market linkages; collect market data, generate information exchange and share regional expertise. It will also promote investment in structured marketing systems including warehouse receipts and commodity exchange.

It also represents the regional membership at national, regional and international forums, and lead advocacy and lobbying actions for best interests of the Council members.

The organisation has a network of intelligence which monitors the cross-border trades as well as disseminates the market prices on daily basis within the region.

If it joins, South Sudan will have a representative in the EAGC’s board as well as appoint its country’s manager in Juba.
