Global Mobility’s relationships with technical consultants, key agribusiness players and finance providers ensure that we can create multi-disciplinary project teams to design, develop and deliver solutions.

In essence we create linkages that open doors and strengthen value chains – including facilitating smallholder and emerging farmer access to markets, value-addition opportunities and capacity building. We can thereby secure sustainable long-term growth opportunities and increase the productivity and efficiency of the value chains.

Each project is different, and the gap or weakness in the value chain can occur at any point, whether land, capital, technical or market access. In each instance we identify and prioritise the links of most importance to our clients.

This could be securing an offshore investor for a green-field abattoir to link smallholders to beef value chains in South Africa, or targeting offtake agreements for export-led growth for Zimbabwean smallholder beef producers.

We are farmers at heart and believe passionately that agribusiness is the key to unlocking sustainable development potential across southern Africa.

Why we do it

We are farmers at heart and believe passionately that agribusiness is the key to unlocking sustainable development potential across southern Africa. Socio-economic and political changes have created a landscape where many of the people who could and should benefit, are excluded from integrated agribusiness value chains. This exclusion limits their development capacity and creates systemic stress to the detriment of all stakeholders.

Innovative schemes such as the Community Livestock Centres proposed by Sabie Meats in Zimbabwe offer a way to more fully integrate smallholders, thereby creating a framework for sustainable growth.

Global mobility combines passion with pragmatism and an understanding that creating market linkages are key to securing finance and the lasting success of value chain initiatives.
