Philafrica Foods is an investment company involved in food processing throughout the African continent, most notably South Africa, Mozambique, Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Our focus is on expanding food sourcing and production across the entire continent by investing in new production sites or partnering with existing businesses operating in Africa. We prioritise sourcing directly from farmers and building long-term relationships in the communities where we operate.
To transform the lives of millions of Africans – economically, socially and spiritually through food processing in Africa.
To unlock the potential of African agriculture through food processing, sourcing directly from small holder farmers, and actively investing in new markets across the continent.
We believe that the most effective way to transform agriculture on the African continent is to create market pull through large-scale food processing. However, to do this well, we believe it’s critical to support each stage of the value chain and care for all stakeholders involved. This can only be achieved through vertical integration all the way back to the farm gate. It also means working closely with small holder farmers on crop variety improvement and technical assistance to enhance efficiency on the farm and the quality of produce.
Headquartered in South Africa, Philafrica Foods is currently represented in the following categories:
