IFC has launched the Agri-processing Resource Efficiency (APRE) Project which aims to help the post-harvest agri-processing sector in South Africa to improve sustainability and competitiveness, emphasizing reductions in fresh water consumption through improved efficiency and/or water recycle/reuse, along with reductions in energy and waste and increased adoptions of renewable/clean energy. Animal slaughtering and processing (i.e. read meat and poultry), diary, fruit & vegetables are top three target sub-sectors for APRE to help in South Africa. The objective of the assignment is primarily to help develop new business and deliver solutions to clients by engaging with agri-processing companies in the three target sub-sectors to provide advisory and implementation support on water/wastewater and related energy efficiency measures to save water and operational costs, as well as to support sector aggregators to develop and disseminate replicable solutions and best practices.
