Namibia’s Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF) has invested over N$61 million in Green Crisp Farming; this is a company producing greens such as lettuce, cucumbers and peppers called Green Crisp Farming.
Green Crisp Farming produces lettuce, cucumbers and peppers for local and international markets, and employs 140 people, 130 of them females, said GIPF in a statement released yesterday. The farm, located some 40 kilometres outside Okahandja, has made headlines before and has been around since 2006.
“Green Crisp Farming is not only feeding families in Namibia, but countries such as South Africa are also enjoying the high- quality production of these vegetables,” said David Nuyoma, the fund's chief executive officer.
As reported on namibian.com.na ¸ the farm also produces yellow peppers and tomatoes, which are available in local supermarkets and are identified by a red round label written under the banner of Fresh-mark.
