Africa's agriculture and value addition magazine

ABOUT AGRI-BUSINESS AFRICA MAGAZINE

The premier magazine on agriculture, value addition & marketing of Africa's animal, crop and horticulture produce

Agribusiness Africa magazine is the premier bi-monthly magazine with a focus on agricultural production, value addition and marketing of Africa’s animal and crop produce. The magazine exists to spur Africa’s own Green Revolution and the creation of an industrialised Africa, driven by its agricultural resources.

Why this magazine?

Africa is projected to have a population of about 2.7 billion by 2060, providing policymakers, Governments and the public with a tough task: feeding a population that will nearly triple in 50 years, and which has been struggling to produce enough to feed its current population.

Low agricultural productivity, hunger, malnutrition and food wastage are some of the challenges that confront the continent’s agribusiness industry.

The continent also lacks adequate capability to add value to its produce, exporting most of this in raw form, only to export it back at much higher prices.

African countries are required to boost agricultural productivity and enhance value addition of their produce to achieve economic and social stability. It is sad that a majority of these countries are grappling with how to achieve these goals.

Agribusiness Africa magazine is targeted at confronting these problems, by providing well-researched editorials and reports that will eventually enable the Africa’s central and county Governments, NGOs, farmers, citizens, traders and distributors, processors and marketers to take advantage of the abundance in Africa’s soil to improve the continent’s fortune.

The magazine is unique in that it focuses on the policy issues and other issues that are important in improving productivity and increasing incomes derived from the agribusiness industry.

It covers the entire value chain from farming, post-harvest handling, processing and marketing like no other magazine in the region.

The magazine is focused on the African continent, providing a 360 degree view of the continent, so as to enable adoption of good practices across the continent.
