On Air Feature
A programme that talks about agriculture and its development in Africa.
In this week's programme: Food Processing: a job earner
The processing of food from crop production to end users’ products is a chain that should be encouraged in Africa to provide necessary jobs in the agricultural sector. Agro processing in other continents have encouraged the formation of Cooperatives that have, in turn, proven to provide an estimated 100 million jobs around the world. In South Africa, the government has had plans to progressively establish Agri-Parks in all 53 District Municipalities. In these plans priority was given to 27 poorest District Municipalities which were expected to be fully fledged agro-hubs and would offer all services along the various commodities value chains.
In the program we hear about value added initiatives in agriculture
