Bridging Continents Through Cannabis
As cannabis cultivation becomes increasingly commoditized, Africa is best positioned to become the world’s leading outsource option.
Low cost land and labor
Vast, multi-generational horticultural skill-base
30,000 km 2 of lush cultivation area and scenic mountains
Competitively priced, modern utilities with abundant water, and power
AphriHelios, formed in 2019 as CannaLeaf Pty Ltd, received its first license to cultivate, process, and export medical cannabis on October 25, 2019 from the Lesotho Ministry of Health. In July 2020, as part of its new Pan-African strategy, rebranded as AphriHelios.
The company seeks, in a phased approach, to become Africa’s largest vertically integrated cannabis operation by leveraging Africa’s comparative advantage as a low-cost producer.
The company is currently in the process of raising its initial seed capital to fund its startup and initial harvest. Additionally, it is securing additional opportunities in South Africa, Zambia and Ghana.
A Phased Implementation Process
AphriHelios will take a phased approach to pursuing opportunities in the cannabis value chain. This will allow us to develop in a way that is flexible and responsive to a rapidly developing industry. It will also allow us to develop deep skills and experience in each phase.
We believe that we can maximize shareholder value by making sure that our creation of economic value also adds value to society. As a principle, we want to align our success with social progress and see social issues and business opportunities.
AphriHelios is led by a Management Team and Board of local and international executives with substantial experience in international agri-business, finance, trade, start-ups in Africa and the US, and a wide network across a range of industries and countries.
