“T´ikapapa” is a program for the planning, production and commercialization of native types of Andean potato through the Participatory Approach in Productive Chains (EPCP) mechanism. It is a process that involves rural families in all stages of design, production and distribution of the product, ensuring not only the access to resources and spaces from which they are normally excluded, but also the natural development of crops and quality control. In this way, the program aims to improve the conditions for competitiveness from a perspective that seeks to ensure food security, poverty reduction and the welfare of rural producers.
