Grow Africa partnership

No other continent depends on agriculture as much as Africa. More than 60 % of that continent's working population is employed in agriculture. And yet food security is still not guaranteed.

As part of the Grow Africa partnership, a number of actors of the seed industry (Dow, Monsanto, Du Pont-Pioneer, Syngenta, Bayer, Bühler Group, UC Davis) joined other partner organizations and the G8 nations to form the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition. The companies involved in this initiative have committed 3 billion dollars of investment in African agriculture. The aim is to strengthen food security and improve farmers' income, while ensuring sustainability.
