Call for Proposals- Market Research Study - Basatine- 2024-01

Berytech Background   

Berytech is a leading organization in the Entrepreneurial Eco-system in Lebanon, that aims to provide a conducive environment for the creation and development of startups, through incubation, business support, counselling, funding, networking, and the company hosting, hence taking part in the economic revival of the country, participating in wealth and job creation, and retaining graduates and high-level skills in Lebanon.   

Context & Background   

Bolstering Agriculture Systems’ Ability to Invest, Nourish, and Employ (BASATINE) is a four-year project that aims to support farmers and other value chain and associated sector actors in areas of Beqaa and Akkar focused on the production of cereals, legumes and vegetables, seeking a territorial approach, and promoting linkages with other value chains. Through complementary interventions designed in alignment with the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, the project addresses food insecurity and provides needed income and technical support to farmers to survive this tumultuous time, as well improve the capacity of food systems to maintain employment and growth in the longer term via stronger domestic production and system linkages. The BASATINE project ultimately contributes to greater economic stability – particularly for women, improved rural development, and more positive social cohesion between host/refugee communities at a local level.  

In that scope, Berytech is seeking to hire service providers to perform research work within the agrifood value chain, to analyse the enabling environment and opportunities for a local and export-oriented production related to fresh and/or processed products in the value chain selected under the BASATINE Program (vegetables, legumes, and cereals). 


The purpose is to conduct comprehensive research and analysis on segments of the food value chain in Lebanon to understand market trends, demand, and export potential. Ultimately, the objective of this study is to provide a comprehensive market study to assess potential market opportunities for Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in the processing of vegetables, legumes, and vegetables. The study recommendations will provide practical steps for both MSMEs regarding viable market prospects and policymakers/regulatory authorities about areas necessitating enhancements in Economic Efficiency (EE). This study should provide additional information to the existing market studies and assessments, and cover knowledge gaps.
