Accolades for top women in agriculture
The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries’ annual Female Entrepreneur Awards (FEA) programme has recognised the role of women in South Africa’s agricultural sector for 17 years.
The awards are intended to “honour the efforts and contribution of women, young females and women with disabilities for the role they continue to play in food security, poverty alleviation, job creation and economic growth within the sector”, according to a statement by DAFF.
This year’s theme is “Proclaiming progress towards women’s empowerment”.
The winners of this year’s national final will be announced at a gala event at Emnothweni Southern Sun in Mbombela, Mpumulanga, on 27 August. Significantly, this takes place towards the end of Women’s Month.
