Asia Plantation Capital Global Business Development Director Gary Crates explains, “Asia Plantation Capital has considerable expertise in utilising land to generate food, bio-energy and niche crops, whilst adding to local incomes and creating sustainable jobs. With population growing rapidly across Africa, and generally good relations between East African nations and countries in the Middle East, we see an excellent opportunity for combining Asia Plantation Capital expertise in agroforestry with capital flows from the Middle East & Asia and the burgeoning consumer market here in Africa.”

Plantation Capital Kenya is already looking at opportunities in wheat and coffee but is keen to explore a wide range of other agri-projects as well as agroforestry opportunities (Cypress, Pines and Eucalyptus) in Kenya and neighbouring countries. The senior management of the Group see the new Nairobi office as a strategic development for their organisation. Gary further commented how “internally we have been planning this development for over one year. The agri-business is all about long-term thinking & strategy; it is about nurturing the land, building relationships, developing markets and coping with natural events. At Asia Plantation Capital, the Group success comes from our passion, expertise and commercial flair, this new office opened in September 2013, and we are proud to have a direct presence in East Africa now.”
