Abstract: Sustainable local sourcing means that a company buys local or regional products, processes them locally and markets them in local or regional markets, and in the process creates a sustainable business that benefits both its local suppliers and the company itself. This is a position paper on the question if sustainable local sourcing is a significant opportunity in Africa.
