The Project that started 2010 covers 43.7 hectares with 26220 Avocado trees. The project provides work to 250 employees working in the field. For the year 2018, we harvested more than 175 tons of Avocado fruits.

We sell our fruits to KUZA Africa Company, which then exports the fruits to France. Additionally, we have local market where we sell the fruits in bags of 100kgs for 65,000-70,000Tsh.
