About Us


The WiA awards recognises talents, rewards resilience and celebrates growth.

The Awards supports through mentorship and market linkages.

We are eager to make women in agribusiness thrive.

The Women in Agribusiness Awards aim to highlight the achievements of exceptional women in the agribusiness fraternity who have risen above the limit to lead the way for others to emulate.

While profit is certainly a sign of agribusiness success, there are many other aspects of measuring this success too and we have identified these aspects such as leadership, resilience, innovation, sustainability and best business practices that usually go unnoticed. The awards also look at solutions that have not only improved the company landscape but have helped achieve business success.

Women-led agribusinesses are the unsung heroes of the African economy. They provide much needed employment and innovation in a wide range of business sectors and industries.
