Africa is faced with severe food and drought issues. In response, governments and private companies have invested heavily in Africa’s agriculture value chains in recent years, paving the way for a renaissance in Africa’s agri-food systems that multiplies the options for farmers and food processors in terms of farm activity options, technology adoptions, the markets they can now tap into, and the information services now available to help them optimize their business activities.
Various stakeholders from government and industry have come up with suggestions and solutions to ensure food security and agro-processing has been marked, through various programs, as a viable solution to grow local agriculture and ensure the development of competitive markets locally and competitiveness globally.
It is from this perspective that AMC International is hosting an exclusive Agro-processing Investments & Technology Summit, which is scheduled to take place from the 29th to the 31st of August 2017 and the Premier Hotel, OR Tambo, Johannesburg.
