Dear SAAFoST member,

Covid has wreaked havoc throughout the South African economy and seen the demise of many businesses in South Africa, driving unemployment rates even higher. Now, more than ever, we need small businesses and entrepreneurs to bring innovative solutions to the market to grow the South African economy. SAAFoST Cape Branch wants to explore this topic through understanding available programmes, incubators, funding and business support for start-ups and entrepreneurs in the AgriFood space. We will also hear from and celebrate some of our successful businesses in this space. Please join us over the next few months for a series of webinars covering this topic.

SAAFoST Cape Branch is hosting the first of the entrepreneurship webinar series on 10 June 2021. Join us for presentations titled "Growing South Africa's Future AgriFood Businesses" by global food industry innovation, health and sustainability expert Abby Stern.
