It was my first time to visit the Fruit Focus in East Malling. The weather was beautiful and atmosphere buzzling with vibrant growers and service providers showcasing their products and services.
Despite the challenges with the economy and changing global weather conditions, it was evident that there is a big opportunity for the fruit and vegetable growers to scale up their production to meet a growing population with consumers wanting a tasty local produce on a sustainable level and keen to play their part in reducing waste.
I am excited that our buried diffuser range is now on the UK market at the right time with its numerous benefits that will help the growers meet the demand, increase their profits and transform their businesses and livelihood.
I will definitely go back next year as an exhibitor!!
Canna was invited to the Institute of Tropical Agriculture to do a presentation on the Agricultural Transformation Agenda: Prospects for the African Youth at the Nigerian Symposium 2014. We sent Jeremiah Nyachuru (CEO) to Ibadan, Nigeria to present and conduct a small exhibition of the Buried Diffuser.
The technical compositon of the buried diffuser, advantages and disadvantages and opportunties for product distribution were all discussed, with Jeremiah challenging the many educated youth gathered to engage with agriculture and take initiative to start projects and become self-employed, instead of waiting for someone else.
There was an overwhelming response and Canna is working with many who showed interest, to create pilot projects and distribute the diffuser in Nigeria.
As a result we arranged a Q&A webinar with Dr Chahbani, inventor of the buried diffuser, scheduled for May 3rd, 11am GMT.
However, we experienced severe technical issues which severely affected the broadcast. For this we are sorry. We are working on recording some footage to upload at a later time.
