NAMDEVCO and its line Ministry, the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries, created historic partnership
On May 1st, 2020, NAMDEVCO and its line Ministry, the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and fisheries, created a historic partnership with the Ministry of Social Development and Family Services. Over the next few months, NAMDEVCO will deliver out of its Piarco Packinghouse, boxes with root crops, vegetables, fruits and chicken to food assistance recipients, approved and listed by the Ministry of Social Development and Family Services.
This initiative now gives NAMDEVCO’s certified farmers from across Trinidad and Tobago, an additional opportunity to sell beyond the farm gate. The vegetable boxes contain a balanced supply of vegetables and fruits and two locally-raised and processed chickens. NAMDEVCO certified farmers wishing to participate in this initiative can contact their Field Officer or the Quality Assurance Department at 647-3218.
