African agriculture is predominantly characterized by low investment, subsistence farming, traditional practices, rain-fed agriculture, poor technology, low productivity, and 80% of the farmland in sub-Saharan Africa is managed by small scale farmers. All these lead to poor quality, inadequate and unsustainable supply to meet the growing local and international demand for agricultural produce and products.
Jagrin Agriculture Company Limited believes that the African continent could and should be feeding itself. So, it pushes for food security through large scale production of healthy, quality agricultural products. And it hopes to transform African agriculture from subsistence to sustainable commercial farming.
It is determined to be part of the pioneers revamping agricultural production in Tanzania and expanding the country’s market share through improvements in both productivity and quality. It is developing sustainable agricultural projects that promote organic farming and enhance environmental stewardship and promoting economic and social wellbeing of Tanzanian people by creating sustainable jobs.

It’s also the center for Changing Flames agriculture internship. Interns learn to farm for a couple of months and then are mentored as they go and start their farms.
