One month left to Avi Africa! Do not miss this, your an­nual event. It is your op­por­tu­nity to meet a va­ri­ety of sup­pli­ers un­der one roof, at­tend var­i­ous talks, and net­work with your peers in the in­dus­try. Ar­range­ments are well un­der way with all ex­hibitor stands hav­ing been booked and speak­ers con­firmed. Credit for this goes to Louisa Nel who has worked tire­lessly in en­sur­ing this suc­cess. I look for­ward to see­ing you there – 20 to 22 June, Em­per­ors Palace, Johannesburg.

AGRISETA info ses­sions post­poned

The AGRISETA has is­sued the fol­low­ing an­nounce­ment about the Provin­cial AGRISETA road shows: Dear Stake­hold­ers ‘In­for­ma­tion ses­sions were planned na­tion­ally dur­ing the month of May 2017. How­ever due to un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances, the AGRISETA has had to post­pone the in­for­ma­tion ses­sions to the month of June 2017. New dates will be com­mu­ni­cated once fi­nalised, to re-regis­ter for these ses­sions. We re­gret for the in­con­ve­niences that might be in­curred due to the short no­tice.

Mr Jerry Madiba Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer.’

Fur­ther to this an­nounce­ment, SAPA ap­plied for fur­ther com­mod­ity grant fund­ing for PME, PMI and Fa­cil­i­ta­tor train­ing ini­tia­tives. Ver­bal feed­back is that this fund­ing will be ap­proved in due course.

Fraud­u­lent on­line ac­tiv­i­ties

Iam happy to re­port that we are re­ceiv­ing pos­i­tive feed­back from peo­ple re­gards our web­site aware­ness mes­sage. Peo­ple are con­tact­ing SAPA first to ver­ify whether sup­pli­ers are le­git­i­mate or not. We need to keep on warn­ing against fraud­u­lent sup­pli­ers who I am sure will change their modus operandi and dou­ble their ef­forts to scam money.
