BFAP

We are passionate about agriculture in Africa

With more than 20 years of experience and a multidisciplinary team of experts, BFAP develops outcomes that are scientifically and economically rigorous, market-related, and implementable.

There is a perpetual need for unbiased analysis and insights to inform decisions on investments and policies in the agricultural, agro-processing and food sectors across Africa.

Our solutions are based on independent, research-based analyses, underpinned by industry experience and a suite of models enabled by the Integrated Value Information System.

BFAP plays an active role in responsibly and sustainably developing agriculture through active engagement within Private and Public sectors and Donor Foundations.

Our passion is to generate insights that facilitate growth in agricultural, agroprocessing and food sectors across Africa to reach their full potential and ultimately contribute to economic growth.

A thriving agricultural sector is built on deep-rooted partnerships with valued clients, an extensive network of research institutions and development agencies.

Long-run partnerships enable innovative insights and solutions. We fundamentally believe that a competitive, prosperous agricultural sector with its related value chains is built on this foundation.
