My African Farm Coop Membership

*(Only open to Accredited Farmers in the SADEC region)

My African Farm Coop, a registered Farming Cooperative in South Africa, with registration pending in Botswana, Madagascar, Namibia, and Zambia, is recruiting farmers in these regions to become members of our Cooperative. The sole intention is to enter into a cooperative partnership to enhance the mutually propitious opportunities of the parties through service provision and collaboration, ensuring that the produce farmed and harvested, reaches the global markets at a profit for all concerned.

Farmers can register as Members in two categories: –

  • Primary Members
    Low Risk, established Commercial Farmers, good security & collateral
  • Secondary Members
    Higher Risk Emerging Market Farmers, low security, or collateral

 

While we are targeting Primary Members to join with us, as their participation will guarantee delivery of product to our global export markets, we are as eager to recruit Secondary Members and develop their capabilities to where they can become accredited as Primary Members.
The range of services, products & services available to the Secondary Members is slightly less than those of the Primary Members, all Members of African Farm Coop enjoy unlimited access to a vast range of products, services and benefits when signing on as Africa Farm Coop Members!

 

How Does It Work And
What Is In It For The Farmer?

There are several highly respected Commercial Farming Cooperatives in South Africa, all well-established, respected and structured to best support and benefit their members in their endeavours to provide food security for the nation and export to the global markets. Africa Farm Coop is targeting the exact same strategy and does not to intend to ‘reinvent the wheel’ in any sense, with only one exception – Africa Farm Coop is targeting ALL AFRICAN FARMERS from all of the African countries that we decide to establish in. We believe that by establishing a super African Cooperative, servicing farmers in multiple African countries, we will develop a global profile that concurrently builds confidence in our members, expands our negotiating influence and global market penetration.

Our model targets established commercial farmers, emerging market, subsistence farmers and farmers in established cooperatives, with whom we intend to engage and partner with, will receive only the very best of support in the products and services we as a Cooperative make available to them. In return, we expect these farmers using our services to (i) subscribe and (ii) to enter into agreements to sell their products to us and in so doing, allow us as a Cooperative to meet our local, regional and international commitments to deliver perishable, fresh and processed food products from Africa to our vast and diverse target market spanning the UK, EU, CIS, MENA, AFRICA & the USA, via Africa Farm Coop HUBS.
