Claire Rhodes

CEO and Founder

Food Systems Fellow
Claire is CEO and Founder of Producers Direct, an international non-profit championing smallholder farmers’ leadership. Producers Direct leverages farmer-centered design with digital innovation to reach 1 million smallholders, supporting farmers to share knowledge, take data-driven decisions and have more power in food value chains. Graduating with a Biological Sciences Masters from Oxford University, Claire’s early career involved counting Costa Rican caterpillars before realising that smallholders manage much of the earth’s natural resources and there is a lot to learn from them. This inspired Claire’s focus on promoting smallholders' expertise and farmer-centered design to transform smallholder livelihoods and resilience at scale.
