Agro-processing companies in the Eastern Cape are invited to be part of the province’s Eastern Cape’s Agro-Industrial Manufacturing (AIM) Cluster, which has been established to identify and address shared opportunities and challenges facing the sector.

AIM provides a vital link between government at local, provincial and national level and the agro-processors. It also hosts regular meetings where member companies can network, and share problems and experiences. The AIM Secretariat facilitates the unlocking of synergies between the member companies, and helps companies to identify and enter new markets. AIM also works closely with organisations supporting primary producers in order to help strengthen the supply chain for agro-processors.

Meetings are held in East London and Port Elizabeth.
