At Fresh Life Produce we are committed to showing the world that there is an alternative to the thinking that we need to have a few large-scale producers to feed households and entire cities. We passionately believe that we all have to become our own “mini” producers that collectively work together to fight the growing food production challenge in a sustainable and natural resource efficient manner.
Our growing system that we have developed – and the design of which has been registered – is called the African Grower and our manufacturing and distribution thereof gives us the opportunity to disrupt the fresh food production market.
Is to give every single food insecure household the opportunity to grow their own food and evolve into self sufficient households and communities that contribute to the socio economic development of our country
