Holistic Agricultural Investments Group (HAIG) develops sustainable, regenerative agri projects and value chains to create employment and enhance food production based on green initiatives, while applying best in class technology across Africa. The company revives distressed sites, builds infrastructure, and establishes food delivery systems. The company prioritizes high value crops like bananas, CBD hemp, and plant protein though it also grows row crops like nuts and vegetables. Future plans include growing citrus and adding processing capabilities. HAIG’s goal is to capitalise on the current opportunity in Africa to profitably and impactfully produce foodstuffs in a low-cost environment where demand massively exceeds local and international supply.
Since South Africa has targeted land acquisition, several large banana operations have dissipated providing a substantial volume gap in imports from Mozambique towards filling that consumer void. South Africa’s unionised labour costs also make non-mechanised enterprises expensive and Mozambique comfortably competes strongly on the labour market. Similarly, the high labour requirement of sugarcane is competitive in Mozambique. Recent international increase of environmental awareness has raised the profile of sugarcane ethanol as a fuel additive and the crop has become very important in Mozambique.
