This year EUCORD celebrates its 20th anniversary! EUCORD was founded in 2003 as a cooperative in the Netherlands by Drs Henk Knipscheer and Pierre Antoine, both working for the US based non-profit organization Winrock International, and Mr Hans Megens, a former Director at Rabobank International.

Over the last two decades, EUCORD has implemented several activities to link farmers to markets in collaboration with private and public sector partners to the benefit of rural communities. Since then EUCORD has gone on to work in twelve countries across Africa, supporting over one million farmers.

With the continued support of current and new partners, EUCORD expects to bring market-led solutions to rural communities for many years to come.
