Africa’s agribusiness and food sector offers significant business opportunities for entrepreneurs and investors. The continent’s population of over 1.3 billion is rapidly urbanising, which is boosting demand for processed and packaged foods. Although Africa has an estimated 65% of the world’s uncultivated arable land, it remains a net importer of food. In addition to catering for locals, businesspeople can also leverage the continent’s agricultural resources to produce food products for international markets.

Africa Agribusiness & Food Quarterly speaks to entrepreneurs and investors to reveal how they built their companies and highlight the industry’s untapped opportunities. This publication is produced by the team behind the award-winning website How we made it in Africa (
