Agribusiness Consulting

Overview

The global agricultural industry is uniquely positioned to meet the demand of the world’s expanding population. This demand is being driven by a growing middle class with a greater appetite for protein and better quality food. In addition, increasing consumer awareness of the food and fiber the world is consuming is driving changes in diet and purchasing choices.

Pedago Africa Consults advises and engages clients across the entire agribusiness value chain in addressing a range of strategic, commercial and operational issues. We understand the unique dynamics and economics of agricultural markets, as well as the critical issues and challenges facing operators seeking to grow and elevate their performance.

Challenges: Food scarcity is the major challenge of the today’s world. We are in a constant state of crisis: Every day at least 16,000 children die of malnutrition, almost 1 billion people of today’s 6.3 billion world population are undernourished. It is also a well-known fact that the modern food production contributes to global warming. Ongoing energy crisis since modern industrial farming – including the whole food processing and distribution process – consumes largest amount of all the fossil fuels. Modern industrial farming – which in the last 40 to 60 years was regarded as crucial to have helped to feed the world, is now entering a vicious circle where it will only increase the crisis instead of showing a way out.
