This year’s theme: Building climate change resilience through regenerative agriculture invites SAI Platform members to develop a broader understanding of agriculture in this region and consider the commonalities, challenges and opportunities across the wider African continent and southern hemisphere.

Taking an holistic landscape approach, SAI Platform’s Annual Event 2024 will address the significant changes that are underway to build climate change resilience in South Africa and how these pivotal learning points can be applied to other geographies, supply chains and SAI Platform’s activities and industry solutions.

Over the five days, members will have the opportunity to visit farms and talk to farmers, policymakers and academics who are part of an ongoing effort to implement sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices that contribute to food security, as well as economic and social development across South African supply chains. There will be a strong focus on how to build productive, profitable and resilient farms and the importance of long-term collaborative partnerships.

Now more than ever it is critical to ensure you have a seat at the table with leading companies who are collectively tackling the major environmental, financial and social obstacles facing agricultural supply chains and rural communities around the world.

#SAIPlatform2024 provides a unique forum and networking opportunity with global sustainability and food industry leaders  working in the food and drink industry.
