The aim of the programme is to provide support to Western Cape based businesses operating in the Agri-processing sector (a secondary objective of this programme is to assist businesses operating in the halal market or businesses wishing to operate in the halal market to expand and export).
Businesses applying for acceptance onto this programme will need to undergo a financial and operational assessment, which will be conducted by the department. The assessment should highlight any challenges and/or opportunities within the business. The Department will then endeavour to assist the business in addressing these challenges and/or opportunities.
Example: should the operational assessment highlight the need for systems, equipment, machinery etc. the Department will, based on the cost of the interventions, either fund or co-fund the implementation thereof. Contribution by the Department will be limited to R200 000, 00 per eligible business.
