Swaziland : Over 400 tonnes of conventional, baby vegetables exported last year
He said Swaziland was gaining significant ground in this area as the country’s footprint was gaining more traction with export market links continuing to grow.
Dlamini said this was as a result of the reputation they were gaining of ensuring consistency of supply and supplying the necessary critical mass in other vegetables.
The CEO was speaking during the National Vegetables Competitions (NAVECO) and National Maize Competition (NAMCOM) 2013/14 prize awarding ceremony held at Mpophoma.
He said NAMBoard/NMC had been spearheading robust collaborative initiatives to see the country take a focus approach in growing this sector to government Vision 2022.
“The company has already forged partnership agreements and memorandum of agreements with several institutions and organisations including the University of Swaziland, Technoserve, World Vision, ACAT, HydroTech and many more.
NMC has partnered with Swazi Trac, Panaar, SWADE and others. NAMBoard, NMC, the ministry are critical at this stage as they assess the competitions in a bid to ascertain their effectiveness and also gauge how well they work together with all other initiatives that the board is involved in,” he said.
He said they realised significant strides in their current endeavours as a board and they were appreciative of the successes at times.
Dlamini said it was more exciting to indicate that the seedling demand in the country was growing at a faster pace than the rate at which nurseries were being expanded.
Adding, he said this meant that the country’s farmers still sourced a significant portion of seedlings from neighbours and it would be interesting to see the strides taken towards filling the gap.
