Utilising agriculture as a catalyst for rural development, poverty eradication and economic emancipation.
African Access Holdings has made the strategic decision to enter the agricultural business since significant growth opportunities lie ahead in this sector.
Sub-Saharan Africa has the largest biomass potential in the world, with vast availability in land and resources. The world is currently experiencing a rebirth of agriculture due to the continuously increasing demand for food, commodities and high energy prices. A global trend towards improved and increased use of renewable energies, growing focus on the conservation of the natural environment frames the agricultural developments and opportunities.
This is not a short to medium term plan, rather a long term phenomenon. Already it gives rise to a shift in production patterns, new investments in primary and secondary agriculture and a move towards mainstreaming more sustainable energy utilisation - and increased food security for South Africa and the African continent.
The objective of African Access Agricultural Holdings and Agriland is to take advantage of the opportunities that currently exist for strategic investors looking for positive net average returns. In seeking these returns, the company has the specific mission of enabling broad based empowerment in the agricultural sector by providing much needed infrastructure. This is achieved by connecting business opportunities with agribusiness focused SMMEs and by utilising their agriBEE credentials in the marketplace. African Access Agricultural Holdings assists their development through supporting emerging small-scale black farmers, black cooperatives, agencies and agents by broadening their access to markets, inputs and other critical services and hence increasing their active participation in commercial agriculture.
