Buchule Jack's lessons on attracting investments for your agri-business
Why on earth would an investment manager give up the high life to work in agriculture? In this week’s edition of the Farmer’s Inside Track podcast series we meet Buchule Jack, the CFO of a farming operation in Bothaville in the Free State.
His investment background, including qualifications from the GIBS Business School, has proved to be instrumental in his endeavour to become a mega-farmer. Jack’s own father has farmed for more than 40 years. In this interview with Food For Mzansi co-founders Ivor Price and Kobus Louwrens he also speaks candidly about the importance of crossing racial and other barriers to secure food sustainability for all.
