GADCO provides expert opinion on food Security to The Econonomst

GADCO , the Agri-food Company focused on food production In Sub-Saharan Africa, provides expert opinion to a New Economist Intelligence Unit study assessing the long-term resource strategy of the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)

 
PRLog - Apr. 13, 2010 - Iggy Bassi co-founder of GADCO, the Agri-Food company focused on food production in Sub-Saharan Africa, shared insights on strategies for achieving food security in partnership with producer nations with the Economist Intelligence Unit.

Iggy noted that deals made with governments may not last in countries that have a high food import requirement: “One minister may be in power for five years, but food security is not a five-year issue. Food security requires a long-term synthesis between the public and private sectors.”

GADCO’s operations in Africa are based on the company’s triple bottom line objectives (financial social, environmental) and a commitment to the principles of fairness with smallholders; commercial viability; sustainability; and commitment to improving national food security. GADCO believes a sustainable partnership with ‘producer’ nations creates long term value and positively contributes to global security
