Century Green

Building a sustainable environment for food production, research,
and growth towards a better future!

Leverage Our Experience

Overview

Century Green is a consortium of agribusiness entrepreneurs, corporations, and major financiers, organized for the purpose of managing, developing, and transforming farmlands into world class, ecofriendly farms and implementing value-addition initiatives using best-in-class technologies, modern machinery, tools, and technical know-how. We develop surrounding community lands into farm cities to improve living conditions for stakeholders and drive sustainable economic development — first of its kind wherever we work.

Through joint venture arrangements with stakeholders or through a Special Purpose Vehicle, we provide partnering opportunities for our business offering. Specifically:

  • Century Green will leverage its international network of agriculture experts to implement best practices on every project and apply state-of-the-art technology where locally feasible.
  • Century Green will co-invest with its partners and assist with capital raise for scaling their operations. Century Green will furnish technical and management support to build capacity for the scaling effort.
  • Century Green will offer agricultural and agri-business training to our Outgrower Farmer communities to aid them in adopting improved methods of farming.
  • Century Green Outgrower Farmer and agri-business communities will have access to credit facilities through the Century Green Fintech Platform, which will help to facilitate lending by helping them build credit and obtain loans for needed farm inputs and equipment.

Our overriding interest is to contribute by linking all Africans to the agriculture Value Chain, assist existing farmers produce larger, good quality harvests and ensure a seamless connection between farmers and customers throughout neighboring regions. By producing high-quality products ranging from farm produce, fish, livestock, animal feed and consumer foods to renewable energy, we achieve positive contributions to gainful enterprise, improved quality of life, and sustainability in agricultural land use and community prosperity.

Vision and Mission Statement

Our vision is to become a veritable partner of African communities, agribusinesses and cooperatives, farmland owners, etc. in consolidating Africa’s position as one of the main producers and exporters of food, and to develop leaders and entrepreneurs in sustainable agriculture, value-addition, agribusiness, and the frontiers of modern farming. Our mission is to expertly manage agricultural ventures and produce food crops and derivatives, functional foods, fish, and meat of high quality, with keen efficiency, in order to contribute effectively to societal development and nation building.

Century Green Modern Farming Program

Century Green’s program includes creating facilities for research and development of closed loop, sustainable aquaculture, and aquaponics (RAS) systems that utilize green energy for the production of fish, fruits, and vegetables on an industrial scale. The system is designed to combine renewable energy systems with green energy systems to produce high yield food production facilities that have a low to zero waste footprint.

Aquaculture

Century Green’s system will allow us to farm the following common aquaculture species:

  1. Fish: (Freshwater & multiple species)
  2. Trout (multiple species)
  3. Perch (multiple species)
  4. Salmon (multiple species).

Indoor Fish Farm Venture:

  1. Indoor tilapia farm that produces over 4 million pounds per year.
  2. Encompasses breeding tilapia fingerlings, grow-out of tilapia, and harvesting of tilapia.
  3. Processing, packaging, local distribution, and export.
  4. Small-holder farmer aggregation; technical support; logistical support.

Aquaponics

Century Green’s system will allow us to provide year around crop production without the losses associated with outdoor food production. Our system is independent of the whims of Mother Nature and weather. This alleviates the concerns of weather-related crop failures. There is also the added benefit of no agricultural run-off to contaminate local ecosystems with harmful pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers, while utilizing 70 to 90 percent less water than outdoor farming. Our ecosystem is self-contained and restorative. It will allow us to recycle the water used in our production, as well as accord us the added benefit of purifying grey water byproduct into clean drinking water. There is also more control over food safety and security by reducing food mileage and the losses associated with long interstate coordination needed to provide most of the vegetables sold in our surrounding communities.

B. Social Enterprise – Non-profit, 501©3

Century Green collaborates with not-for-profit corporations, community-based organizations, and philanthropies to contribute and raise donor funds for social service support to stakeholder communities. Century Green’s Corporate Social Responsibility program dictates such support. Our directors engage in the following services through the BOD of such organizations.

  1. Educational Training, Science, and Innovation
  2. Specialty Skills Training
    Charitable Funding Support and
  3. Charitable Event Hosting
  4. Research (in related fields of engineering of farm implements and equipment, fisheries, renewable energy, nutraceuticals, food supplements and value-chain elongation, biology, etc.)

In collaboration with local universities’ staff and resources, we research and develop local talent and technology to achieve our goal of establishing a truly sustainable system that produces highest quality foods on an industrial scale, while recapturing, repurposing, and /or reusing most (if not all) of our waste products. The byproduct of the research would be industrial amounts of food which could be sold for profit, reinvested for the expansion of the facility, and a percentage of the profits would be donated to local charities on a consistent basis. We work hand in hand with local municipalities to provide numerous jobs for the cultivation, systems operation, distribution, and maintenance of stakeholder farms and processing facilities.
