Sabina Farms, a Guyanese company, is hoping to be able to enter the multi-billion dollar vegetable market in Guyana and abroad. Sabina Farms’ President David Aparisio said his goal is to produce high quality food for local, regional and international markets.
Development has been ongoing at St. Lawrence for several years, with containers of produce already exported. But now, Aparasio believes that Sabina Farms is poised for expansion. “The vision is to restore this rural village, to employ people, to make the community a whole lot more livable by creating jobs within them,” he said in an interview.
To achieve its vision, the company is partnering with TOP Greenhouses, an Israeli company that operates sustainable greenhouse technology in 52 countries. Through this partnership, the company plans to establish more shade houses and as such, grow more food.
