Welcome to Agri 5 Expo and Summit

AGRI 5 EXPO

The AGRI 5 Expo is in its eleventh year in 2024 and is the ideal platform in assisting organizations to facilitate the development of African farmers in order to increase their meaningful participation in the agricultural sector within poultry, livestock, dairy, crop and piggery commodities. The platform seeks to promote opportunities and assistance for black farmers to transform their primary produce into agri processing and access further markets.

The workshops and expo will give private companies and government department and agencies an opportunity to promote their social programs, form dialogue and sharing of development experience between the entity and the African farmers. The purpose of the Workshop & expo is to create awareness for the young farmers on how their produce can be turned into a secondary commodity, not only does this create further markets for the farmers it ensures growth for the business as farming is a business and its main objective is to mark profits time after time.

Atone Works believes this approach will drive the sector to see more measurable results for black commercial and emerging farmers going forward, so to ensure they sustain and grow their farming ventures, experience opportunities within the agri processing value chain of the sector and most importantly assist in aiding for the correct produce from the farmers as this will translate to a real opportunity within the space.
