Upland Marketing Foundation Inc (UMFI)
In 1992 Upland Marketing Foundation, Inc. (UMFI) started as a development program - the Upland Marketing Program (UMP) of Upland NGO Assistance Committee (UNAC). Its initial program goals were focused on land tenure of marginalized upland communities, agro-forestry, and marketing of upland (i.e. non-timber forest) products. It provided training, information dissemination, technical assistance, and marketing services to its target beneficiaries.
