For everything to go as expected, Fernando Ferreira, president of the FF group, said that about 80 people who work near the farm have already been hired.
In addition to these 80 national workers, the company will also have the help of several South African technicians, who will prepare the land for the cultivation of corn, beans, soy, among other products. For now, the production of the farm will strengthen the local market, but the objective is to create the necessary conditions for the products to be exported, writes Angop.
The arrival of the South African technicians is the result of a partnership between the FF group and a South African company, Junior Smith.
Wermar Crafford, a representative of the South African company, said that the aim of the company is to help restore the farm to normal operation. However, he did not reveal how much money will be invested in the Angolan farm, which has been dormant for four years.
In this first phase 307 hectares will be cultivated and 1250 will be exploited with rainfed crops.
