Besides the investor, who benefits? And how?

The key parties benefitting from this concept are the investors on the one side and the farmers on the other. The farmers benefit because they are able to expand their existing operations and create more jobs. Did you know that there are double the number of people employed in farming as opposed to mining in this country? It is a huge employer and the sector is in decline. The farmer benefits due to increase volume of crops and the profit associated with that.

There are many other beneficiaries along the value chain, for example service providers handling distribution, the off-takers and retailers of produce, farm workers and employment seekers, and of course the consumers (for example, a greater supply of real, unadulterated honey).
