Growth and efficiency are the key words for team Garden Basket. The following plans are in place to increase productivity, optimize operational expenditure and ensure business continuity: 

  • Automate irrigation by investing in a centralized soil moisture monitoring solution that makes use of irrometers with automated watering functions.
  • Reduce use of pesticides by investing in biological pest control. This will not only reduce operational expenditure but significantly reduce chemical residues in our produce.
  • Invest in back-up power and stand-by pumps.
  • Invest in automated packaging machines.
  • Open a fresh produce shop in city centre.
