Sibjam is an online marketplace for local farm products. Sibjam connects over 1500 farmers with more than 200 organic and local farm products.
The platform will provide quality farm products at wholesale rate with delivery service to buyers. On the other hand, Sibjam will provide marketing and logistics services to farmers so that farmers can concentrate on production and not have to spend time and resources on finding a market.
Owing to natural, logistics, and marketing factors - our farmers go through distressing time to sell their produce, and face losses for the perishing nature of their produce. It is Sibjam’s aspiration to find buyers before the crops/produce is harvested.
We also believe the shortcomings are the result of information constraints. Sibjam provides data and information on farm produce across the country. However, the collection of data is a work in progress.
Sibjam’s endeavour is to ensure effective linkages between producers and consumers, and reduce waste of valuable agricultural and other farm produce. Eventually we aspire to build a proper food supply chain management, so as to manage perishable goods better and cut down on loss.
Through Sibjam, we envision to empower farmers and contribute to self-sufficiency and food security.
‘Sibjam’ is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Bhutan Foundation and Loden Foundation.
