Africa needs food. Sustainable agricultural practices will not only enhance nutrition and food security on the continent, but also create much needed employment and economic growth.
The food and beverage industry has undergone a series of changes in the last decade due to the rapidly changing behaviors of consumers, technological advancements and stringent regulations.
Despite the challenges, the food and beverage industry has seen an accelerated interest from consumers. RMB’s Food and Beverage, Consumer and Agriculture sector bankers are industry experts who develop innovative solutions to service the strategic, operational, financial and societal needs of said sector across Africa. In addition, the team tailor-makes and structures innovative funding and hedging solutions to support the processing and distribution segments of the agricultural value chain. The team’s intimate knowledge of the industry enables them to create a disruptive space for industry players to explore new business models to produce products that conform to market needs.
We do this through our extensive in-country banking network and representative offices in key jurisdictions in Africa.
