Today we export to Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, USA and Asia. • TF: What have been your biggest challenges so far, and what do you anticipate for the future of the agricultural sector? • BI: It’s a challenge to keep up with the international rules of food security, which are fast-moving. Looking to the future as arable land becomes scarce in our region, it’s important that we ensure sustainable farming survives and flourishes in Africa. • TF: If you could pinpoint three keys to your success, what would they be? • BI:(1) Single-minded focus: Our strategy has been to establish a top-class reputation in a relatively narrow band of products rather than accepting mediocrity across a broad range; • (2) Thoroughness and obsession with quality standards: These days, a business needs to stay ahead of international certifications to ensure its products are confidently received in export markets; and • (3) Analysis of trends and market research from around the world: This helps us anticipate and meet consumer demand.
