The International Conference on Business Models in Agriculture

March 10th - 13th 2025, Naivasha Country Hotel Ltd T/A Sawela Lodges

Background

Food security in Africa is a critical issue that demands innovative solutions and sustainable strategies. Agribusiness, with its unique business models, is poised to play a significant role in addressing this challenge not only in Africa but also beyond. By leveraging technology such as Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in agriculture, agribusiness can enhance food production, distribution, and trade, ultimately improving food security in the region.

 

 Through efficient market systems and value chains, agribusiness can streamline the process of bringing agricultural products from farms to consumers, ensuring food reaches those in need promptly. Additionally, by focusing on food enhancement techniques and quality standards, agribusiness can help increase the nutritional value and safety of food products.
