Challenges and opportunities for agribusinesses in South Africa


The South African agricultural industry is changing at a rapid rate as is its operating environment.

Consolidation is fast becoming the norm and for businesses to remain competitive it has to juggle a number of key drivers and differentiators to ensure financial progress and sustainability.

Many agribusinesses remain fairly stagnant in their operating and Go-To-Market (GTM) models which creates certain challenges in the growth and development of these entities.

  • Strategy and vision
  • Corporate strategies
  • Capital restructuring
  • Organisational operating model

and list key factors to consider for the future.
