Who wins the Esoko “Best Online Food Delivery Platform of the Year” Award?

The Ghana eCommerce Awards 2018

Esoko is powering rural communities through digital transformation and financial inclusion. Our solutions include mobile and web-based tools for data collection coupled with field deployment; an SMS/voice-based communication platform for farmer management; and an electronic extension mobile and web app.

Esoko started in 2005 as an experiment to see how the emergence of mobile technology in Africa, could improve the lives of rural communities across the continent.

The first project enabled the delivery of market prices via SMS, in support of work that FoodNet was doing with MTN in Uganda. Over time Esoko realized farmers needed much more than price information, and added weather alerts, crop advice, and linking buyers with sellers. Various research finds such services can improve incomes for farmers by roughly 10%.
