Food production is one of the pivotal roles played by Agribusiness in any given country. Asides food production, the agribusiness sector is a main contributor to the nation’s GDP and presents employment opportunities to a larger percentage of the population. It is the backbone of the economy.
Across the agribusiness value chain, from field to fork, the activities are resource intensive. High levels of investments are needed to fully harness the potential of agribusiness for enhanced food production and sustainable economic development.
