OUR SERVICES

WHAT WE DO

We industrialize rural communities through agriculture, where we have strategically identified mushroom production, training & farming as our niche flagship project, with a long-term vision of establishing an agri-hub incorporating additional agro commodities and vertical farming technologies.


We have launched a signature project titled “Re-industrializing communities through mushroom farming” where we train and upskill people in rural communities, the majority being the youth, women and people living with disabilities to produce and process different types of mushrooms – a community that will be known as “Mushroompreneurs” Our long term goal is to create self-sustainable, self-reliant, industrious communities of these mushroompreneurs, not only in South Africa, but across Africa. technologies, using the mushroom project as a template for all our successive projects. We are working with Indigenous Leaders of our rural communities as our main stakeholders, establishing Trusts that will financially benefit their Councils for improving the rural infrastructure and other needs.

OUR BUSINESS MODEL

We, Afrique Rising Trading (ART), have identified a unique opportunity through mushroom farming. The interest in mushroom production started in 2018, when the Founder of ART, Mr. Daniel Motshwane, received mushroom training in Malawi from U.S. mushroom farmers. Mr. Douglas Williams and Dr. Shiitake Mama, formerly Sandra Dutreau Williams, who was a University Professor. Dr. Shiitake Mama has been a successful mushroom farmer, marketer, and business executive for over 30 Years. She and Mr. Williams owned and operated Lost Creek Mushroom Farm, now Shiitake Mama Mushrooms, in Oklahoma, USA. They created mushrooms in Ghana project in 2008 to support mushroom production in West Africa, and mushrooms for Well Being Foundation in 2013 to promote mushroom education, consumption, and small-scale farming worldwide.
