Agri-processing company Ojes Agrícola, based in Morrumbala, Zambézia province, is investing US$3.5 million in the production of corn, sesame, peri-peri and other crops.
But one of the company’s partners says that, at the moment, the company’s biggest headache is a shortage of labour.
“My first problem is workers. I need about 400 workers a day, but only 20 to 30 people appear. That’s my biggest problem,” entrepreneur Manishi Pariki complains.
Backed by Indian capital, Ojes Agrícola is sourcing modern machinery for agricultural production. Pariki said that the investment will roll out over a five-year time-span, along with ventures in other areas.
