Food industry charity raises 380k

Farm Africa has raised 380,000 so far, it announced earlier this week.

The charity, which is backed by the food and drink industry, proclaimed two recent projects in Africa as a main contributor to the figure.

Later this week Farm Africa will take on its third challenge of the year, by marching 13 food industry leaders on a six-day 145km trek across the Tanzanian Highlands

The challenge follows one held in May, when 14 female food and drink industry executives dug a giant fish pond in an African village, so the community could rely on fish for food and an income.
