African agrifood systems are being transformed by an influx of multinational capital.
Research on this transformation focuses primarily on the rise of supermarkets and demand for
African land. An under-appreciated facet of this transformation is multinational investment in
African grain trading. This paper uses basic descriptive statistical data and qualitative
evidence to examine the implications of the recent multinational investment wave into cereal
and oilseed trading in Zambia.
