Rundu fresh produce distribution hub is currently in the process of registering local farmers

The Rundu fresh produce distribution hub is currently in the process of registering local farmers with the Agro-Marketing and Trade Agency (AMTA) for the purpose of supplying to government agencies.

The acting regional manager, GervasiusThikusho yesterday in an interview with Nampa encouraged small-scale farmers as well as youth groups to register, also reminding them that the fresh produce hub has not closed and is operational.

It was reported last week Monday that AMTA had closed all its fresh produce distribution hubs as all agents were given notice to leave.

Thikusho explained that AMTA will assist producers to develop a cropping calendar in line with the government agencies, offices and ministries, adding that this programme of inviting farmers has been running since early June.

The acting regional manager said they supply produce to some of the government agencies such as the military bases in the Kavango East, West, and Zambezi regions through August 26 Logistics.
