About Us

Agri-processing is emerging as an important sub-sector with potential to spur economic growth and create jobs. The Agri-Processing Support sub-program enables agricultural producers to enter into the value-adding activities related to the processing and marketing of new products. The aims of this sub-programme are to facilitate the production of new products, create and expand marketing opportunities and thereby increase producers’ incomes. The role of the sub-programme is to create an enabling environment for the development of the agri-processing capacity in the Western Cape in order to create vibrant rural economy. The Sub-programme, through the Agrihub located at Elsenburg, provides support on a broad range of services, including but not limited to, the following:

  • Encouraging downstream beneficiation of agricultural products through new product development and existing product improvement;
  • Compliance support with regards to food safety and quality;
  • Product analysis and testing;
  • Technical advice on procurement of agro-processing equipment;
  • Facilitate agro-processing funding related applications
  • Capacity building on various agro-processing initiatives
