Rwanda-Israel horticulture deal to cut down on imports

For some years now, the growing high-end Hotels in Rwanda have complained about ‘poor quality’ of local fruits and vegetables – pushing them to import the products.

This will be history in the near future. Rwanda and Israel have jointly ventured into a horticulture project that experts in this field say has reached maturity stage to serve high demand for products on the market.

KT Press toured the Rwanda-Israel Horticulture Center of Excellence at Mulindi, in the outskirts of the capital Kigali.

The main fruits and vegetables grown at the centre include yellow sweet pepper, red sweet pepper; green sweet pepper as well as red tomatoes grown in a greenhouse system.

By adopting new technologies from Israel, the centre helps farmers through learning by doing a system where they come to the center get training on different technical skills on vegetable and fruits production.
