Our Story

Food security & sustainability are key focal points for governments globally, with significant investment being injected into Agricultural value chains. Mitigating risk around these investments is vital, the need for sound, pertinent advice & due diligence from proven industry experience is business critical.


I founded Red August Group in 2019, following decades of Agri-business and recruitment experience, building teams and projects across the emerging markets of Africa and Asia.​ With Africa's population set to double by 2050 & with 60% of the worlds' undeveloped land for Agricultural production, our primary focus is on the continent.​
