Agri-Processing Supplier Development Programme (Western Cape)
The Agri-processing Supplier Development Programme aims to facilitate the development of businesses with growth potential in the agri-processing sector. Businesses will be developed through a structured process – business turnaround or business improvement – to ensure upward movement in the value chains of the agri-processing sector and its associated value chains.
