Tchela Macai Farm to double pineapple production

The manager of the Tchela Macai Farm, Emanuel Matacano, revealed that the agro-livestock project will increase its production of pineapple to double. The goal is to make, starting this year, the production of that fruit double from 50 to 100 tons per year.


Located in Sambo commune, in Huambo province, the farm decided to focus on pineapple production in order to supply the national market and play an active role in the diversification of the country's economy.

Emanuel Matacano, speaking to Angop, explained that in order to reach the established goal, the farm has been paying more attention to market demand, with the aim of analyzing the production flow and thus avoiding that the fruit ends up rotting in the company.

The farm is composed of 252 hectares of cultivable land, 75 of which are dedicated to pineapple production. It also has six hectares dedicated to lemon production, five are dedicated to banana cultivation, another five are for avocado, four hectares contain sugar cane crops, three have onions, two are for guava, and one hectare is used to grow passion fruit.

Geraldo Marques, an agricultural engineer, hired from Cuba to take care of the production, indicated that production concerns the pineapple variety of the Callena Lisa type.

The production has had good results, said Emanuel Matacano, adding that the pineapple harvest is scheduled for the end of July.

The construction of a processing and juice manufacturing plant is, according to the farm manager, one of the biggest challenges of the project.

The responsible also made known that the farm counts with the collaboration of 35 permanent and 100 casual workers.
