How does Agri Western Cape serve its members

AWC enters into discussion with the private sector, and actively negotiates at government level to gain support for the agricultural sector. We have representatives in each municipal area, and is therefore well-informed when arguing legislation and policy on behalf of our members. AWC utilizes the extensive pool of expertise among our members and affiliates to serve the needs of our members.

Our History

The need of Western Cape producers to manage their common interests by means of an organized structure, stretches as far back as 1807 when the first agricultural association was established. Over 200 years later, organized agriculture in the province is still standing strong.
