Driving Africa's growth through OneFarm
A digital business-to-business platform that connects and provides services across the agricultural ecosystem through Lend, Protect, Grow, Trade and Share services. In South Africa, the OneFarm Platform was launched through OneFarm Share as a result of the food crisis caused by COVID-19 lockdowns.
OneFarm Share has partnered with HelloChoice, a digital agri-trade platform, and FoodForward, a beneficiary network, to match excess produce from farmers with certified food recipients. Food is procured at a reduced cost or donated by farmers and then provided to beneficiary organisations.
The platform facilitates the smooth delivery of a nutritional basket of goods to vulnerable recipients in rural areas of South Africa.
“The need for food relief is greater than ever, with over 12 million South Africans unsure of where their next meal will come from,” says Lungisa Fuzile, Standard Bank South Africa Chief Executive. Get more detail on OneFarm Share, along with ways to donate.
