Lisa and Zoe Paisley - Aggie Global

In this episode of Pitch to Scale, Samar McHeileh speaks with Lisa and Zoe Paisley of Aggie Global. Did you know that 90% of farmers live below the poverty line? This is a stat the Paisley twins will change. Having studied agricultural science and worked in developing countries for over 12 months, Lisa and Zoe Paisley have experienced first hand the challenges farmers face. The lived experience and insight they gained into this real problem quickly developed into a passion the twin sisters are determined to solve. They launched Aggie Global in Fiji in December 2019 after having completed the She Starts accelerator program. Their business aims to connect farmers with big markets and have already on-boarded some of the world's largest hotels who are and are purchasing produce from local farmers. They have halved their costs and reduced time spent on procurement from months to minutes. But more impressive is those farmers are now making 6x more income and no longer being forced to waste food. The energy and fresh perspective these impressive founders bring is truly inspiring.
