This year, Welcome2Africa International is partnering with African Development Bank, AFEX Commodities Exchange Limited and Nigerian Investment Promotion Commissionto put forward its Agrique Africa Investment Mission 2017 in Nigeria, with the core goal of catalyzing finance and investments into Nigeria’s Agribusiness sector.
On our panel this year, we have put together amazing panelists to expose to us the key considerations necessary to structure investments into the Food and Agribusiness enterprise in Nigeria.
A sneak peek into their discussion will follow the line of thought of the Food and Agricultural Organization indicating the link between food and agriculture, its evolution and continuum.
A peep into the future is a revelation that, the food industry will increase the quality and diversity of the products it produces. Food manufacturers will have particular expectations of agriculture as a supplier of their raw materials.
It will be safe to note that quality of production will be a key consideration to structuring investments into Agribusiness and thus agribusiness will see to it that it meets increasing emphasis on quality. In all, Quality has proven beyond doubt to be a key consideration in accessing investments.
In terms of food processing, investors are most likely to consider the ease of processing in the food industry. Like all industries, reductions in the costs of capital equipment, wages and inventories are important objectives. For example, farmers who can deliver on the ‘just-in-time’ principle will contribute towards reducing a manufacturer’s working capital and space requirements.
You can expect to get a full dose of the identified considerations that you can consider as investors to structure investments into Food and Agribusiness at AAIM 2017 as these amazing panelists give their explicit contributions at their session at the Investment Forum.
