Agriculture is the single most important economic activity in Africa, a quarter of the region’s GDP is generated from it and it remains the continent’s largest employer.
Yet Africa’s full agricultural potential remains untapped and significant investment will be required if it is to realise its true potential.
Rising urbanisation and the increasing number of middle-class consumers has led to major growth in consumer spending and greater demand for fresh produce, dairy, meat and processed foods – all of which Africa should be able to satisfy.
While the potential is significant, unlocking it requires practical, on-the-ground effort and innovation.
However, this requires significant and practical, on-the-ground know-how, effort and innovation. Investment, cost competitiveness, creating partnerships, consolidating supply chains and attracting top talent are all needed to realise the opportunities.
