Friends of UKZN Agriculture Committee

Friends of UKZN Agriculture was launched in 2012 by a group of men and women committed to seeing Alumni of the School re-connected with their alma mater, as well as seeing the School connected to agribusinesses and industry in South Africa in a number of ways. This group meets regularly to guide the activities of Friends of UKZN Agriculture and assess the impact we’re having within the School and further our reach into agribusinesses.

The Committee is led by Duncan Stewart, Managing Director of Lima, who initiated the establishment of Friends of UKZN Agriculture. He is supported by a number of staff from the School as well as other members of industry.
