A Consortium of Expertise
We are a group of agribusiness entrepreneurs, corporations, and major financiers, organized for the purpose of managing, developing, and transforming farmlands into world class, ecofriendly farms using best-in-class technologies, modern machinery, tools, and technical know-how. We develop surrounding community lands into farm cities to improve living conditions for stakeholders and drive sustainable economic development — first of its kind wherever we work.
Our overriding interest is to contribute by linking all Africans to the agriculture Value Chain, assist existing farmers produce larger harvests and ensure a seamless connection between farmers and customers throughout neighboring regions. By producing high-quality products ranging from farm produce, fish, livestock, animal feed and consumer foods to renewable energy, we achieve positive contributions to gainful enterprise, improved quality of life, and sustainability in agricultural land use and community prosperity.
Our program includes creating facilities for research and development of closed loop, sustainable aquaculture and aquaponics (RAS) systems that utilize green energy for the production of fish, fruits, and vegetables on an industrial scale.
The system is designed to combine renewable energy systems with green energy systems to produce high yield food production facilities that have a low to zero waste footprint. In collaboration with local universities’ staff and resources, we research and develop local talent and technology to achieve our goal of establishing a truly sustainable system that produces highest quality foods on an industrial scale, while recapturing, repurposing, and /or reusing most (if not all) of our waste products.
The byproduct of the research would be industrial amounts of food which could be sold for profit, reinvested for the expansion of the facility, and a percentage of the profits would be donated to local charities on a consistent basis. We work hand in hand with local municipalities to provide numerous jobs for the cultivation, systems operation, distribution, and maintenance of stakeholder farms and processing facilities.
