At Longhall consulting we believe that hunger in Africa is an anomaly in a continent known for its brimming young population and large expanse of arable land.
As a means of mitigating Africa’s hunger problems, we provide consultancy and project development advisory for integrated agro-industrial clusters such as the Special Agro-industrial Processing Zones (SAPZ), rural transformation centres, special economic zones, crop processing zones, rural development.
SAPZs are capable of increasing productivity and competitiveness while creating employment for millions of youths and rural dwellers. Through Agricultural Transformation Clusters (ATCs), agro-processing activities will be concentrated in areas with high agricultural potential. The idea behind the SAPZ is to create an integrated hub consisting of commercial activity that encompasses production, processing, logistics and marketing. Hubs are located in areas with sufficient agricultural potential and adequate basic infrastructure to attract private investment.
