Hence, we focus on making online shopping convenient and affordable for farmers by cutting out unnecessary inventory and middlemen that normally compound the cost of farm inputs. Right from our e-commerce site, farmers can easily place orders for their livestock (which include various breeds of broilers, pullets, cockerel, point of lay), poultry equipment (drinkers, feeders, etc.) as well as eBooks on how to manage their farms successfully.
The event had the presence of lots of brands, local and international; all coming together to discuss and share insights on how to leverage technology to help solve today’s toughest business.
