FUTURE AGRO CHALLENGE South Africa

Countdown

to the 2020 Future Agro Challenge – South Africa Pitch Contest. Hosted as part of the world renowned Agritech Africa 2020 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. 

FUTURE AGRO CHALLENGE

We live on the edge of food scarcity and increasingly scarce water and land resources, creating a volatile environment for food security for the growing population. As industry 4.0 pushes boundaries in how society grows, prepares and consumes food, a new breed of innovators and entrepreneurs are emerging to disrupt the status quo along the full journey of food from Farm to Fork.  

Future Agro Challenge is an international ecosystem beyond its Global Championships that supports these visionaries as they bring forth solutions for socioeconomic growth and entrepreneurship in local communities, as well as, regional and global markets. 

FoodMakers Africa convenes Future Agro Challenge in South Africa, as part of the leading AgriFood startup contest represented in over 60 countries on 5 continents.
