Carrinho invests another 60 million on the way to end the import of corn, rice, wheat and beans

Seeds, agricultural mechanization instruments and other inputs were the most recent investment by the Carrinho Group, which continues to focus on stimulating national production, with a view to reducing imports. This year alone, more than 60 million dollars have been invested in the objective.


David Maciel, executive director of the company, clarified that through this and other investments the country should stop importing 12 ships of different products, including corn, rice, wheat and beans. The official also said – on the sidelines of the 'Agriculture 3.0' conference – that harvest forecasts for this year point to 360 thousand tons of grains.

João Cunha, Secretary of State for Agriculture and Livestock, was present on the same occasion, who stated that the sector remains committed to seeking development based on science, technology and scientific research, as a way of increasing research and productivity.

According to the leader, cited by Jornal de Angola, the Government intends to continue to modernize national agriculture, taking into account the implementation of technological innovations in stages. The main objective is to increase the production of oilseed cereals, legumes, fruits and tubers.

Another government priority is also animal production, in order to reduce the import of meat, which can easily be produced in the country.

Also represented at the conference was the agricultural company 'Paula Bartolomeu', which defended the need to build new roads for the flow of products, regardless of the productive stakes.

The businesswoman also defended the valorization of national products, which she said was necessary to promote with her own reference. It referred to sweet potatoes from Cacuso (Malanje) and cassava from Zambia, produced in Sumbe and Gabela (Kuanza Sul).

The first conference on 'Agriculture 3.0' took place under the motto 'The seed of sustainable and inclusive business'. This type of agriculture, also called 'smart agriculture', advocates a modern concept of agricultural management that uses digital techniques to monitor and streamline agricultural production processes.
