How Is Multinational Investment in Grain and Oilseed Trading Reshaping the Smallholder Markets in Zambia?

Nicholas Sitko () and Brian Chisanga

No 234948, Food Security Collaborative Working Papers from Michigan State University, Department of Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics

Abstract: African agrifood systems are being transformed by an influx of multinational capital. Research on this transformation focuses primarily on the rise of supermarkets and demand for African land. An under-appreciated facet of this transformation is multinational investment in African grain trading. This paper uses basic descriptive statistical data and qualitative evidence to examine the implications of the recent multinational investment wave into cereal and oilseed trading in Zambia.
