Dago said: “Our first impression is that there is a huge potential for growth through value addition and processing,” The Herald reported.
“There is a lot of scope for development if farmers receive the right support mechanisms; both technically and financially.”
The establishment of the agreements is expected to conclude within the next few months.
Contracts will include the accomplishment of one of the main goals of the company, namely to set up a presence in Zimbabwe.
