Transforming African Agriculture Ecosystem to Unlock Growth Potential and Enhance Productivity

Agriculture and agribusiness together account for nearly half of GDP in Africa. Agricultural

production is the most important sector in most African economies, averaging 24 percent of GDP for the region. The landscape is continually changing driven by a combination of global and local pressures. Trends and factors include: food security, policies and government strategies, investment and financing options in farmland projects, advancement in technologies, environment and social governance (ESG) strategies, competition, fluctuating commodity prices and rising population.

As the players grapple with these trends and develop strategies for profitable growth — including the establishment of new export markets, establishing advanced food processing capabilities, adoption of new innovative technologies or responding to local opportunities for joint ventures and alliances — they face a number of operational risks and complex business challenges.

In responding to these challenges, companies and entrepreneurs are increasingly seeking independent professional advice to help enhance decision making and accelerate growth. They know that the most reliable and relevant advice comes from advisers with a solid base of industry experience, local understanding and know how.

SSCG's Agribusiness Practice offers consulting, advisory and operation services geared to the unique needs of the African agribusiness sector and aligned value chain in the economy.
