Five investment recommendations isolated after a countrywide market analysis.

Background:
USAID’s MEC program needed to review the cold storage logistics value chain in Morocco, which is critical for boosting agribusiness exports – a sector that represents over 25% of total GDP.

Methods:
Utilizing our on-location team in Morocco, LixCap conducted a market mapping survey of refrigerated logistics networks throughout the country. Local stakeholders along the value chain were engaged in order to identify capacity constraints, and LixCap led a local stakeholder educational delegation to meet with US counterparties.

Results:
Five specific investment opportunities that represented choke points for agricultural exporters were identified along the cold chain in Morocco. Among these, LixCap targeted the most attractive proposition and began investment structuring, carrying the opportunity from analysis to literally creating a concrete opportunity.[/fusion_text]
