Got Produce Global has officially launched their Ag innovation hub in Namibia, Africa. This facility, located just outside the town of Swakopmund, will serve as a biosecurity seed bank and breeding center.
The Got Produce Global innovation hub will focus on research and development, advanced crop production methods, comprehensive crop variety testing, and workforce readiness learning programs specifically tailored to hydroponics.
Ms. Deborah Walliser, the founder of Got Produce Global, expressed her excitement about the graduation of the first five candidates from the Greenhouse Operations Training program. During a ceremony at the hub, Ms. Walliser personally congratulated each graduate and presented them with well-deserved certificates. She emphasized the critical role of a skilled workforce in shaping the future of agriculture, stating, "One of the bottlenecks in the industry is having a ready workforce for the new future of agriculture. With our local hub, we can prepare a workforce to build and operate high-tech hydroponic greenhouses."
In addition to its commitment to innovation and technology, Got Produce Global places a strong emphasis on biosecurity. The new biosecurity seed bank and breeding center will safeguard valuable genetic resources, protecting the biodiversity and long-term viability of crops against potential threats.
As part of the company's expansion plans, Got Produce Global is currently constructing a larger commercial greenhouse, which is expected to double the production capacity of the entire country and further strengthen food security in the region. This ambitious project reflects the company's dedication to addressing the challenges of agriculture and ensuring a sustainable and prosperous future for Africa.
