In this paper we look back on the first year of a three‐year project which aims to undertake the research necessary to develop a wider range of market outlets, products and value chains for beef produced by the small‐scale and emerging sector in South Africa. We discuss the difficulties encountered in designing and implementing the project, and we review progress towards achieving the economic, social and environmental outcomes that we are seeking.
