Guyana: Food production and storage facility to come up soon

Guymex International has announced its upcoming state-of-the-art food production & storage facility.

This initiative aims to improve the landscape of food production and storage in Guyana, utilizing advanced technologies and sustainable practices. "We are ecstatic to embark on this project, which marks a significant milestone in our journey," said Charles Sahadath, CEO of Guymex International Inc.

"Our team has been tirelessly working with our partners and investors to ensure that we are fully equipped to meet the growing demands of Guyana's market. This facility is a testament to our commitment to innovation and excellence in the food production industry."

The facility will include hydroponic systems designed to optimize food production and reduce the country's reliance on imported goods. "By building a hydroponic facility for local consumption and regional distribution, we aim to significantly reduce our imports, which aligns with 'CARICOM's 25 by 2025' initiative championed by His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfan Ali," Sahadath added. In addition to hydroponics, the facility will feature temperature-controlled environments to maintain the optimal storage conditions for various food products.

This infrastructure aims to play a critical role in ensuring food quality and safety throughout the supply chain. The advanced storage solutions will help minimize food wastage and prolong the shelf life of perishable goods, ensuring that consumers receive fresh and safe products. The total investment for this ambitious project stands at US $13.2 million for the first phase, with an additional US $28 million allocated for the second phase.

These funds will cover land acquisition, construction, operational costs, and product development. "Our investment reflects our commitment to transforming Guyana's agricultural sector and contributing to food security," said Sahadath. "We believe the time is right to leverage our resources and expertise to make a lasting impact on the industry." The facility is also set to create numerous job opportunities for the local community, from skilled agricultural workers to administrative and technical staff.
