Which funds support investments in agriculture and agribusiness in Africa?
Frederik EbbesenDenmark
African Agriculture Fund (AAF) is a private equity fund that focuses on land development, plantations and edible oils; especially for local consumption. They also focus on maize and wheat milling, branded food and the logistics and storage of these products. Their minimum investment is $5 million and max is $24 million where you have to satisfy certain criteria’s.

There is also the AATIF (African Agriculture and Trade Investment Fund) that makes direct and indirect investments. The direct investments have been in small and medium scale agriculture businesses, and the indirect investments include funding to local financial institutions.

There are many more, but these are the biggest players.
