The AFRI.CAN vision is to industrialize rural Africa with complete, strong, sustainable and smart AFRI.CAN micro-factories, business incubators and agro-processing facilities for SME's of entrepreneurs and cooperatives.
AFRI.CAN is committed to help revolutionize the agricultural economy of Africa. Countries such as India and China became giant economies through small scale and low-tech processing similar to what AFRI.CAN offers. Africa is rich and blessed with good soil, good water, and good people producing good produce. Every village deserves an industry, a place where youth can learn skills, where women can be empowered, where those without jobs can be employed or become self-employed as entrepreneurs.
The team of AFRI.CAN learn from communities by asking emerging farmers what they need, and only then custom solutions are developed together. Whatever the local produce, a solution for processing, preserving and packaging is found. AFRI.CAN micro-factories are container canned processing units built to be food-safe, durable, secure, and able to function sustainably. AFRI.CAN is changing the African landscape, not only by adding value to rural economies, but also restoring dignity and changing the way people think.
AFRI.CAN micro-factories offer keys to possibility, to food security, pro-poor development, best practices, social responsibility and sustainability. We see the African continent dotted with these micro-factories for grass roots industrialisation, empowering people from various agricultural sectors with skills, income and hope.
