MUSA GROUP ENGAGES ON THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPPORTING AND EMPOWERING EMERGING FARMERS IN SOUTH AFRICA ON SAFM
Last month, the Competition Commission raided nine fresh produce dealers based at the Johannesburg Market and Tshwane Market after the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries reported cartel conduct, which could limit the development of black farmers and raise prices in the food sector – affecting vulnerable households the most.
About a week ago, President Jacob Zuma urged stakeholders in the agriculture sector to develop black smallholder farmers and to make a contribution to economic growth and job creation. For more information, please see article.
Musa Group and Spar have partnered to empower black emerging farmers in the agriculture sector. The private equity firm aims to transform the agriculture sector by providing financial support and empower disadvantaged black entrepreneurs with the skills to fully participate in the mainstream economy.
