Brickstone InfraLAB Acceleration Programme
Industrial based Agriculture
Our Industrial based Agriculture Practice includes the infrastructure and machinery required for agri-value chains from the farm gate, along the agribusiness supply chain, to the end processors. Post-harvest processing anchors the efficiency and productivity of a value chain by
- Driving up value at every point within the chain.
- Ensuring higher returns on investment at each value point.
- Reducing downtime and lags in productive assets.
- Reducing losses and wastes.
- Creating a factor for expansion and growth.
