With a B.Sc. Honours in Agribusiness & international food-chain management from the Dronten University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands; an MBA and a unique insight into African value chains and some of the most pressing local and global issues, it is evident that Mkhululi has a passion for food security and sustainability.

We also discussed the crises that we’re facing and the possible solutions to collectively overcome them.
