Angola moves away from oil and into agriculture

Outside Luanda, agribusiness Fazenda Girassol sells 60 different types of fruits and vegetables. It grows them but also buys them from other farmers. In one of its greenhouses, the company grows cucumbers using drip irrigation. Sensors regulate the mix of purified water and nutrients. Constantino César, Director of Sales and Public Relations, at Fazenda Girassol spoke to Euronews about the company’s goals.

“We are different because we use technologies from around the world to get the quality that the market needs. Not only the national market but also the international market. Our first goal is to supply the local, national market. Then, as we grow, to supply the international market.”

Girassol has more than 1100 employees. Crops are cleaned and packaged for supermarkets, restaurants and airline catering. They also have a website for online orders and home delivery.
