Accelerating shifts in food and agriculture combined with consumer trends have agribusinesses making strategic moves to increase agility, drive growth and penetrate new markets said Ben Leyka, Chief Executive Officer at the African Agri Council NPC. There’s never been a better time to gather high level stakeholders in food and agriculture in one place to discuss the business of agriculture, policy shifts as well as M&A and private equity deals, said Cindy Euston-Brown, Communications and Marketing Director at the African Agri Council NPC.
The agrifood value chain offers a growing number of attractive investment opportunities, driven by some compelling global trends. Since 2005 the number of funds operating in the sector has exploded by over 1000%, managing over USD 70 Billion in aggregate, according to Farrelly & Mitchell.
Mr Leyka added "Investors and financial institutions need to be bold in their reviews to ensure they take advantage of new market dynamics and develop systems and pipelines that allow them to pivot quickly as circumstances change. At the same time, food and agribusiness executives need to be ready to make acquisitions that will help them drive growth as businesses open and economies recover".
