The aim of this project is to unlock the opportunities for farming enterprises to enhance agro-processing in the province. It is also envisage that the event will create a platform where stakeholders and enterprises involved in agro-processing can interact, collaborate, identify challenges and appropriate interventions, bench-mark, share best practices and share information and data in the development of the agro-processing in the province.
To ensure professionalism and quality, all participating enterprises will be trained before pitching their business concepts.
