Agency AgriBizz was formed last year to act as a platform that liberates agricultural information for the betterment of the industry in Africa.
It started as a physical magazine but has since transferred to be completely online. The mission of Agency AgriBizz is to be the leading magazine that provides agricultural related knowledge in Africa; to be a one stop centre for farmers to get the latest agriculture news, trends in the international markets, analysis of the latest technologies and farming techniques, talk to experts for solutions to problems they force and network with each other for increased business opportunities.
In an interview with Chimpreports on Wednesday, AgriBzz CEO Morrison Rwakakamba, stated: “We believe that through availing farmers with the necessary information they require, they can in turn use this information to empower themselves to better their businesses. Being nominated for this honour will surely boost our efforts to see the small scale farmer reaping the most out of their farms and seeing agriculture get more recognition for its massive contribution to the economy of African countries.”
Agency AgrBizz is up against 25 other blogs from all-over the continent.
When asked what he thinks of AgriBizz’s chances of winning this, Roland Niwagaba, the Managing Editor, had this to say, “We are counting on our readers to help us win this. Our following and readership has grown significantly since we started last year and these are the people we are counting on to enable us bring the award home.”
When asked what he thought of the competition, these were Niwagaba’s remarks, “All the blogs that applied share a common goal, and it is inspiring to see so many people across the continent passionately promoting agriculture. Even if we do not win, we shall be comfortable with the knowledge that there are like minded individuals all-over the continent pushing the same agenda.”
