Angola has the resources to become one of the leading agricultural countries in Africa, reports the US Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agriculture Service. And once upon a time, it was.
Look up Angola and agriculture on Wikipedia and you’ll see that Angola’s history involved a flourishing tradition of family-based farming. The country was self-sufficient in all major food crops except wheat. Angola exported coffee and maize, in addition to other crops including sisal, bananas, sugar cane, cassava and cotton. In fact, coffee was once Angola’s leading export and was considered among the best in the world.
