"The soil is very fertile for launching this type of project in Togo, simply because all the governmental and financial mechanisms, but also the political will, are there for the success of the project", explains Hugo Despretz, Sales Manager of VegInnov met in Lome.
As he said, in Togo, "VegInnov will help structure the market gardening sector, strengthen food security and professionalize the sector".
"Our presence will also help train young people and market gardeners in modern and professional techniques, and our presence will also help to transfer North-South technology and also adapt this technology to the Togolese challenge," said Despretz.
He underlined that the discussions with the Togolese Minister of Agriculture, Noël Koutera Bataka were fruitful and that according to him, the minister was very convinced with the concept of VegInnov.
"It is up to us to develop the tools to adapt to Togo, its economic social conditions, its climatic environment, agronomic etc," added him. In Benin, VegInnov uses the latest technologies in agriculture to set up turnkey farms.
"We are working with the Beninese government to operationalize this modern agricultural exploitation that should serve as a showcase for this technology that is expected to deploy in Togo," said Hugo Despretz.
