AFGRI is proud to announce that we are the headline sponsor of the inaugural African Farming Agri-Development Imbizo, taking place on February 8-9, 2024, at the Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg, Gauteng.
Founded in 2020, African Farming strives to promote black commercial farming in South Africa by providing informative and inspiring content, and creating platforms to help farmers develop and grow. This is its first annual Agri-Development Imbizo, which hopes to INSPIRE, EMPOWER and INFORM agriculture leaders – young and old – TODAY to find game-changing solutions for a food-secure South Africa TOMORROW. The theme is “Create a better future through inclusive growth and shared success”.
In hosting this event, and through our sponsorship, African Farming will create an action-driven platform for agriculture development that combines public and private interests, finance institutions focusing on development, agribusiness investors, and other key players. The two-day event will facilitate interactions, linkages, and collaborative efforts within the industry and will provide an opportunity to connect with and empower the next generation of agricultural change-makers.
During the Imbizo, more than 250 farmers, entrepreneurs and industry leaders will meet to network, discuss, and find solutions and strategies to overcome barriers related to finance, markets, skills and training, and project development. This platform will connect willing investors with potentially profit-making agricultural ventures, and highlight available opportunities.
