With 15-years of generating intelligence for the agro-food industry, BFAP prides itself on partnering with private and public sector stakeholders, to inform relevant issues. Our objective is to produce rigorous analyses, through a network of multi-disciplinary analysts, to support (your) strategic and operational decision-making.
We consider prototype farms across South Africa and analyse how different policy and macro-economic shocks affect profitability and financial sustainability. Farming units for grain, oilseed, livestock, wine, fruit, vegetables and sugar are included in the program.
We relate food consumption patterns to changes in the socio-economic environment and price changes. We provide a link between the agricultural and food industry dynamics and household food consumption.
We combine farm- and socio-economics to quantify the risks faced by rural communities as it relates to securing livelihoods. We relate rural communities’ activities to society, the economy, institutions, value chains and markets.
Model based simulations and market intelligence are our forte. We evaluate the effect of different future scenarios on the broader agricultural industry or specific markets and sub-sectors.
We unpack industry value chains to evaluate relative performance drivers, competitiveness, challenges and sustainability at various nodes. We identify complex institutional interactions and combine scenario analyses to inform strategic decisions.
Our data scientists, statisticians and analysists distil information and insights from vast amounts of diverse data sources. We develop creative solutions through the application of econometric, statistical and spatial analytics tools.
