Africa Report: Food and Agricultural processing

McKinsey's 2016 Lions II on the Move report highlighted the post-commodities boom phase of the African continent and sought to identify what would drive us forward through the cycle, and where.

Refilwe Moloto, Founder and Principal Advisor at Ambassador Advisory says the food and agricultural Processing sector is a huge employer and provider for people in rural areas.

She says the large importation we see in the sector comes from cereal and meats. Moloto adds that Africa is capable of 'feeding' itself and sustaining its crop as challenging as it is.

For the full Africa report listen to the clip below:
