THE FUTURE OF AGRICULTURE IN AFRICA

PEI Spotlight Seminar/conference15th

March 2017@ The Library, Royal Society of Chemistry,Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BASlide3

The continent of Africa has enormous potential, not only to

feed itself, eliminate hunger and food insecurity, but also to be a major player in global food market. This potential lies in its

land , water, men, women, knowledge and huge markets. Recognizing this opportunity, the African Union chose 10 years ago to make agriculture one of the pillars of the New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD).

‘Foreword’Slide4

SACOMA

GLOBAL FOODS INNOVATION has taken advantage of the market opportunities through various interventions including 1) Food Innovation and Food Products Design technologies and packaging.

Provides and facilitates training on EU Food Standards and Knowledge Transfer Partnerships for building technical capabilities to add value, process, brand, package and niche-market the premium sweet potato products’ access to European/Global markets, targeting health-conscious consumers for packaged food that is tasty, healthy and convenient to prepare based on palatability and

preference

2

) Modern warehousing to extend shelf life of fresh sweet potato roots and assure sustainable supply.

3

)

Mobilizing farmers into producer groups (or cooperatives), Training them on harvesting methods, good agriculture practices and food heath standards to ensure famers are integrated in the supply chain, guaranteed fair price and increased incomes and welfare.

About SACOMA GLOBAL LTDSlide5

The continent is bursting with potentialAt

200 million hectares, sub-Saharan Africa is home to nearly half of the world’s uncultivated land that can be brought into agricultural production. Africa uses only 2%

of its renewable water resources compared to 5% globally. Together with abundant resources, including a resourceful, enterprising youth population, strategic investments in agriculture can unleash virtuous growth cycles

How can

Africa

capitalize on

the

opportunities?Slide6

African farmers need

new technology—higher-yielding, more resilient food crops that deliver bountiful harvests. New techniques are beginning to boost yields in rice and cocoa, among other crops. African

farmers need more electricity, more irrigation, and better infrastructure that links them to lucrative regional food markets. Africa need sound policies that do not discriminate against the farm sector.  Women produce the bulk of food in Africa, and yet they are largely locked out of land ownership, access to credit, and productive farm inputs such as fertilizers, pesticides, and farming tools. Further, they are often bypassed by extension services, limiting their productivity.

The needs:Slide7

The Comprehensive African Agricultural Development Programme (CAADP) seeks to drive our continental agricultural revolution, by increasing investment in agriculture, fostering entrepreneurship and investment in agribusinesses and

agri-food value chains, improving national and regional agricultural markets, fostering Africa’s collective food security and improving the management of natural resources.

The adoption of innovation required to increase productivity cannot be simply decreed.

Innovation meets the needs of producers Family farming is best placed to optimise labour use and to enable greater land useHarnessing the Entrepreneurial potential: the public authorities have become accustomed to seeking external assistance at the expense of making more significant national budget contributions to finance capabilities the agricultural sector

.Develop sustainable business model and proof of conceptSlide13

Niche marketing, branding, Geographical Indication (GI), Gluten Free, high profile endorsements

Emphasis to farming as a business, a profitable venture, raise the profile of the farming profession; Promote change and transformation in agriculture (catalyst for change)Mobilisation of resources, including HR, and development of farmer groups/cooperatives and productive units that have the greatest development potential.

Sweet potato is a widely grown root crop in Kenya and other parts of Sub-Saharan Africa as

a source of energy, anti-oxidant and Vitamins. In spite of its increasing importance as food and commercial crop, sweet potato faces high post-harvest losses during transportation and storage, poor harvesting methods, handling, and packaging. There is no warehousing technologies to improve shelf life of harvested roots and increase opportunities for Bulk Trading.
