Investment opportunities among small-holder farmers and entrepreneurs working in Africa’s food supply chain are being targeted, according to the statement. The fund is looking to address the affordability of farming products, resilience of crops, broadening market access and reducing food loss and waste by 50% in the companies it finances, the groups said in the statement. “It’s great to see development finance institutions and commercial investors partnering to tackle one of Africa’s most pressing challenges,” said CDC’s head of private equity funds Clarisa De Franco. “Small-holder farmers account for 60% of sub-Saharan Africa’s population and the continent remains a net food importer,” she said. The African Development Bank expects net food imports from the continent to grow to more than $110 billion by 2025, compared with $35 billion in 2015. ©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
